Wiesn Hymns / Military Murmurs

Within a fundamentally visual exhibition of temporary cities, the sound installation brings together field recordings from ephemeral urban phenomena that take place remotely but simultaneously. Throughout one year, sounds from a festival in Germany (Oktoberfest) and a celebration in India (Kumbh Mela) overlap with noise from a railway market in Thailand (Talad Rom Hoob), a military camp in Afghanistan (FOB Lightning), and an extraction site in Chile (Chuquicamata)… They constitute an audio space that is marked by a flag.
