Who has the right to decide how our urban environment should sound?

This question is at the heart of the Sonic Aggregator project, in which everyone is invited to research the sound environment of HAUS DER STATISTIK from 17 to 27 September and speculate on the sounds of the future city. How does it sound now? How should it sound? Who or what determines that?

To enable this research and speculation we will install the listening art object Sonic Aggregator on site. The object - a modular, sculptural installation - invites people to linger, listen and interact, transporting and conveying the idea of urban sound, like a kind of Trojan horse, directly in the urban environment. While sitting in the object's acoustically perfected semi-open sound space, visitors can virtually navigate through a defined part of the city via touchscreen and immerse themselves in the respective sound worlds.

When can I come visit?

Sonic Aggregator is an initiative by Soundtrackcity and Tuned City hosted by ABA in Haus der Statistik to present a co-creative process to design the sound of urban places.

Sonic Aggregator is financially supported by Creative Industries Fund NL and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
