Beschreibung des Events
Hydroacoustics festival is a 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, recorded and released.

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

Tickets will be available by end of April 2021. Further details about the timetable will be announced by end of May 2021.

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.

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 started out learning clarinet and guitar, later moving on to drums. The self-taught composer’s acclaimed debut album Pocket Symphonies has been released on the Deutsche Grammophon label. Through the last years, Sven’s concerts inspired audiences at the Barbican Center London, Alexandrinsky Theatre St. Petersburg, Bolshoi Opera Minsk, Manchester Camerata, Reina Sofia Madrid, Volksbühne Berlin, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg as well as the Enescu Festival Bucharest to name just a few.
