about stadtmusik


Architecture forms all sounds we hear. Urban architecture is a sound box, it shapes space, wherein the range of sounds that surround us is resounded and reflected. In the video “Stadtmusik,” the Linz-based media artist Dietmar Offenhuber and the Berlin formation TamTam (San Auinger / Hannes Strobl) deal with sound in cities by analyzing sound structures triggered by urban buildings and facilities. They focus on the aspect of movement in the city, which reinforces a dynamic experience of the urban soundscape: particular sounds emerge through movement, and sound and its timbre evolve from material and space.
