This is a stereo-version and an extract of the sound-composition that I crafted for an audio-visual installation titled ‘Looking for Medusa’ in Senckenberg Naturmuseum in Frankfurt am Main. It was visible from June 2023 to January 2024. The installation was accompanied by a rich program (screenings, symposiae & workshops) drawing on cooperations between the natural sciences and the arts, the coral reef, mythologie and the ocean.
The composition was exhibited in the form of a 5-channel sound-installation.
Underwater sound recordings of coral reefs (Marsa Nakari and Dolphin House, Red Sea, Egypt), ship traffic (Frankfurt am Main), English Channel (Alabaster Coast); further sound recordings: Baking soda/water reaction, hot oil, ice cubes, crystal glass/water), tadpoles, rain on polyamide etc., synthesizer, melodica, sansa etc.
(5 channels, near-field monitors, coaxial loudspeakers, structure-borne sound transducers on lime wood, mixed media)
