The composition and sound research project Sound in Transition is based on an association of universities with cultural venues and functions as a digital artistic experimental laboratory in which audiovisual sound installations and compositions are created.
Through listening, events, range, spaces, as well as their density, complexity and changeability are revealed to us in a special way. Based on the acoustic exploration of urban sound environments and the collection of sound material, sound compositions are to be conceived with students, which particularly focus on structures and changes of urban space. The focus will be on structures and changes in urban space. A new, process-oriented mediation format will be developed, which can also be implemented under pandemic conditions or location-independently and supra-regionally.
The work process as well as the final audiovisual presentation forms focus on digital and media formats and link them in performances and temporary installations at the 3 locations Kiel, Lüneburg, Lauenburg. Central to this is the investigation of how digital and analog worlds are consciously combined and how aesthetic practices, forms, content can be developed as hybrid formats in the context of current media culture. In interaction with the architecture on site, moving, living spaces/formats are created in which the boundary between digital and non-digital becomes blurred.
