"Music FROM the Cloud" with eight site-specific audio works for smartphones from May 1 to May 31

"Music FROM the Cloud" takes a step towards the active listener in very practical terms. It takes the term of the "cloud" seriously, which plays an ever larger role in the reception of music in our day and age. The works have exclusively been produced with this context in mind and are only available "on air" from 1 – 31 May 2013. They reflect historic, architectonic, allegoric, atmospheric and other particularities of the locations and connect the medial artistic experience with the real, concrete surroundings.

Together with the architects’ network "raumlabor berlin", independent cultural projects were selected that carry out social, sociocultural and artistic work and have "acquired" corresponding spaces (interior as well as exterior):

"Music FROM the Cloud" is one of the many "Music IN the Cloud" events with which the Music Section offers a wide spectrum of the ways in which sound and urban space can interact artistically in this day and age. Sound installations and an audio room offer the opportunity from 8 – 19 May at the Akademie building on Hanseatenweg to explore the city from an aural perspective. Two concert evenings (17 / 18 May) address certain places and their aura and atmosphere in a unique way, and are augmented by lectures and discussions with experts and artists.
