Audience participation performances are a recurrent theme in the Web Audio community and can take as many shapes as imaginable. Berlin, the city hosting the Web Audio conference this year, has been a source of inspiration for innumerable artists, both known and unknown. This performance is an anonymous celebration of participatory music in Berlin in the form of a collective soundscape. Inspired by John Cage’s Imaginary Landscape No. 4 (1951), twelve audio streams from the Berlin area are sonically distributed, repeated, delayed, amplified, reverberated, distorted and finally vanished.
