Description - Baumberauschen

Baumberauschen was part of the series Kunst- Identität held in Neuköolln, a socially speaking problematic district in Berlin. Two trees in the park were suited with two leaf-shaped plexiglas speakers each. Each tree had its own sonic identity: one with terracotta-pots percussive sounds and the other with a female voice. A third remote tree was located in Kreuzberg, a nearby district, without speakers but suited with sensors. The remote tree was connected to Neukölln using a wireless cellular network provided by Moobycent.  The tree in Berlin provided distinct sounds due to specific wind conditions. The installation became a contemplation site for the normal audience in the park. Several discussions from the audience about the "right sounds" for this installation took place during the time it was on.
