The temporary installation 'Sounding Facade' connects the inside and the outside of Berlins Max-Schmeling-Halle. The outside and inside correlate to each other through their common acoustic surroundings. Two directional speakers are fixed at the facade of the building. Because of the directional speakers (audio spotlight) you can only hear sound in an area of 1m² in front of the building. The audience passes hit by the sound like an acoustic shower.
There are two listening perspectives – sound from the loudspeakers (soundscapes from the inside of the building) and ambient noise. The soundpieces from the speakers are randomly and our senses get confused. 'Sounding Facade' moves beyond our picture of the common definition of architecture and gives space and its surrounding an own artistic sonic identity.
