Creepage Current, the artists’ three-part acousmatic work, is realised via a sound system involving eight high-fidelity, three-way speakers. Each part of the work is derived from recordings of electronics by Nielsen and recordings of Neumann’s playing of her signature ‘inside piano’, a reduction of the piano to its strings, resonance board and cast-iron frame. Created by means of open improvisation, graphic scoring and multilayering, these recordings are remixed and spatialised through eight channels into a complex collage of sonic movement that elicits an impression of spatial texture and tactility.
Curated by Geoff Stern, SONIC SPACE consists of sound installations by artists who are active within the sound art scene in Berlin and internationally. The exhibition series explores sound’s materiality from a variety of artistic perspectives, reflecting the complex field of sound art in contemporary practice – from provocative noise manifestos and soundscapes of catastrophe to musical sculptures and critiques of social space.
