A previously abandoned block apartment building in rural Brandenburg is the subject of an 8-channel sound installation featuring a video projection. The sounds of the doorbells still working in the building, as well as water heaters, radiators, and dripping faucets were used as sources in the sound composition. The temporal organization and spatialization of the sound mirrors events occurring in the projection, which features room interiors that alternately become visible through the windows of the building and disappear into darkness. As different constellations of light, shadow, attacks and resonances are formed, the facade is presented as a point of confrontation with the dialectics of inside and outside, as well as inclusion and isolation. A thoroughly choreographed representation of dwelling acts as a vessel for interpretation, imagination, and memory, speaking to the experience of the housed.
