Music from the Cloud – Thomas Wochnik
1-31.05.2013, A Site-Specific Audio Work for Smartphones
Berlin-based sound artist Thomas Wochnik has realised an audio work for the Center for Arts and Urbanistics in the Berlin district Moabit which, as part of the Akademie der Künste’s “Music from the Cloud” project, can only be heard in the open space on site via smartphone in May 2013.
"Music from the Cloud" involves compositions and audio works by eight Berlin-based and international composers, sound artists and authors that are based on selected, significant cultural spots in Berlin and can only be heard at these locations via smartphone. With the acoustic works from the cloud, users can embark on some of Berlin’s most interesting independent projects and also use their ears to become acquainted with the city beyond the obvious tourist highlights.
Using GPS, the audio pieces will be placed at their respective locations via the radio aporee platform and will be on air from 1 – 31 May 2013. They can be received using an app that can be downloaded free of charge.
