'ohrenhoch, der Geräuschladen' presents at the Art Festival 48 Stunden Neukölln 2016 to the festival theme "SATT":
full of contemporary
by the ohrenhoch-Kids and Knut Remond
"ACTIVE COLORIZE" - full of contemporary manifests itself with imagination and wit, is courageous, dazzling and inventive, surfeited with exchange of ideas, juicy with life, stuffed with ideas and colored with Utopia!
The ohrenhoch-Kids together with refugee children present a cornucopia of speech, voices and ideas, by humans for humans.
Opening hours 'ohrenhoch' at 48 Stunden Neukölln 2016:
Friday 24 June: 2pm - 11pm
Saturday 25 June: 2pm - 10pm
Sunday 26 June: 2pm - 7pm
“Active Colorize” additional ohrenhoch Sundays:
Sundays 3 and 10 July: 2pm - 9pm
Unimpressed by swaggering fattened blockheads, moments of delight are thriving at 'ohrenhoch'.
The ohrenhoch-Kids together with refugee children and adolescents present "Active Colorize". These are rich, coloured sound processes, pictures and diagrams - a cornucopia crammed with innumerable segments, which are improvised and composed, and presented as a sound installation, by humans for humans.
"Active Colorize" is an activated, heterogenous, stuffed denseness. It's about hearing, listening and being heard. In this project in cooperation with Berlin Mondiale, at ohrenhoch a wonderful collaboration grew from January to June between the original ohrenhoch-Kids (since 2008) and the refugee children - the New ohrenhoch-Kids. They developed their own Think Tank: a dazzling, full sound-space-picture installation. A conglomerate leaded into the presentation or sound installation for 48 Stunden Neukölln.
Starting from German words that were translated by the Kids into Arab, Farsi, English, French and Finnish, and written on a paper on the wall. The language, the words are a bridge building to a playful context together with writing, drawing, photographing, embedded with tiny little electro-acoustic sound compositions.
We are sated, fainthearted, and stupid idiots! We destroy ourselves, and aren't aware. In our so-called cultural diversity and historic responsibility, we have to concentrate on new paths and on the ability for being imaginative. This is also my endeavor with the ohrenhoch-Kids: to support abilities, and as an ohrenhoch-Kid said: "Life is art, and art is life". Instead we meet other people with agitation, with verbal and physical violence, and with war deployment we destroy not only humans with great potential but all of us.

(ohrenhoch remix 2016, Premiere)
by Lauren Sarah Hayes
Lauren Sarah Hayes on 'Scorched Earth':
Scorched Earth (ohrenhoch remix 2016, premiere) is part of Sounding Out Spaces, an ongoing series of collaborations between Lauren Sarah Hayes (site-responsive performance) and Tobias Feltus (analogue [+ digital] photography). This piece documents a performance at the once booming sea-side resort, now abandoned Bombay Beach, The Salton Sea, California. The Salton Sea is a man-made environmental disaster. The decaying sea is host to large-scale bird and fish die-offs. Its shores are covered with salt-encrusted skeletons. Expecting to work with portable live electronics, we were pleasantly surprised to find an abandoned piano frame on the beach. This is the only instrument that featured in the original performance. Along with the sound of birds, planes and distant freight trains. In this remix, I weave in my current response to the original performance, adding piano and live electronics. I transform the original material to reflect the ongoing transformations and degradations of the sea, which remains, in my memory, post-apocalyptic...

by Daniel Lercher
'pars stridens' is a composition the material of which mainly consists of unprocessed field recordings of crickets & cicadas in New Zealand, India and Australia.
In the middle part additionally high frequency resonators with partial tones of the stridulation (sound production) are activated.
The end is made by a field recording of a cave in Norway.
The composition 'sublocation' was created in 2016 as well, specially conceived for the loudspeaker installation 'BassBox' in the cellar of 'ohrenhoch, the Noise Shop'.
Here the psychoacoustic spatial perception of the recipients is influenced by means of very low-frequency signals and a granular spatialization, creating a discrepancy between the visual & auditive localization.
was born in rural Austria and today lives in Vienna as a freelance musician, composer and sound artist.
He completed the seminar for computer music and electronic media at the Universtity for Music and performing arts.
In his works he is concerned with electroacoustic compositions/improvisations, live electronics, photography, installations, music for dance & film, etc.
The list of his past activities includes concerts, installations & recidencies in Europe, Asia, America & Australia.
Numerous collaborations with musicians and artists home and abroad.
