Soundinstallation by TAMTAM

Sound installation in cooperation with „mikromusik“- Festival for experimental music and sound art.
St.Johannes- Evangelist church, Auguststr.90, 10117 Berlin; 10.09. – 19.09. 2014


raumfarben 06 is a sound installation for the interior of the St.Johannes- Evangelist church in Berlin-
Mitte. It creates a soundscape which works on the visitors‘ sense of space and time and the emotional
perception of an interior and makes the architecture of the church speak. The starting point for the sound
installation raumfarben 06 is the church interior and its function as a resonance chamber as well as the
ambient noise entering the church from outside and the social, functional and rhythmic structure of this

The way the church architecture „speaks“ and the external noises that can be heard inside form the basis
for the compositionstrategy and its sound language. The  spatial colours composed for the installation
activate the architecture and allow it to speak in different ways in its sub-division into low, middle and
high registers.

The spatial colour cycle of the sound installation raumfarben 06 lasts 50 minutes

colour 01: high register, spectral
colour 02: low register, warm-dark
colour 03: high register, bright-noisy texture
colour 04: low register, dark-physically
