Beschreibung des Events
Hydroacoustics — Festival for scientific and artistic exploration of the subject of reverb, in Berlin’s unique water resevoirs.

Zu diesem Event

The 150 year-old underground water reservoirs in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg are a unique industrial landmark in Europe. The larger reservoir features five concentric circles around a tower. The reverberation time in the outer ring of the water reservoir is up to 18 seconds, shortening towards the inner rings. The smaller reservoir, with its column and vault structure reminiscent of a crypt, has relatively even reverberation times of 4 to 6 seconds.

Hydroacoustics will be one of the first festivals to deal scientifically and artistically with the subject of reverb. The festival, in October, will commission four composers who will work with the unique acoustic conditions to develop site-specific compositions. The pieces will be premiered live and recorded.

We have commissions confirmed for German composer Sven Helbig, British born, Berlin-based cellist Lucy Railton, Lebanese-born musician, DJ and curator Rabih Beaini and Swedish-Polish composer, sound artist Marta Forsberg.

After the live presentations in an acousmatic setting, the reservoirs will open for free to visitors as walk-in installations (Sunday, 03.10). So everyone, including families with children will have the opportunity all day on the Sunday to explore these unique spaces and experience all four compositions.

Sven Helbig is a composer for choir, orchestra and chamber music. He combines classical composition techniques, with a deep knowledge of electronic sound synthesis and his skills on various musical instruments. He is a long time collaborator of Rammstein and british Pop icons Pet Shop Boys. Sven hosts his weekly radio show 'Schöne Töne' on Berlin’s radioeins, celebrating music history and contemporary artists.

→ Emerging from a long-term engagement with contemporary music the British, Berlin-based musician Lucy Railton is active as both a performer in new music and improvisation, and writes her own music for cello, electronics and field recordings, releasing solo records on the labels Editions Mego/GRM and Modern Love, and in collaboration with Peter Zinovieff on PAN.

Rabih Beaini is a Lebanese-born musician, DJ and curator. He started Doing in Lebanon in the 1990s and went on to start Morphine Records in Italy in the 2000. Beaini will engage in a site specific installation-performance at the Wassespeicher. By expanding the Kabel instrument concept, Beaini wants to multiply the signal and vibration of the cables with a self-built magnetic field based system he will be developing in Loco. Rabih comes from an electronic music background, but has expanded it into electro-acoustic, experimentation, and formed a unique performative practice.

Marta Forsberg is a Swedish-Polish composer, sound artist and musician working in the field of installation art and electronic music. She studied studied Electroacoustic composition at the Royal College of Music and has released albums on Havtorn Records and Holy Geometry.

The artist schedule for each day will be announced on 10th August.
