WOW / HVL003

The most minimal record ever made.

WOW is a vinyl record created by Carl Schilde, containing only a single ultra-low frequency which will alter slightly depending on the mechanical components of the record player used. Use more than one system to play several records simultaneously to create complex sub-sonic wave-fields.

WOW has been shown as an interactive multi-channel installation numerous times, including Ars Electronica Festival 2012, and was performed as a concert at CTM Festival Berlin 2013. More installations and live shows will follow in 2013.

The WOW project also includes MOM – the Mother of All Records –, the master plate of WOW. This single piece can be acquired for €33.333.33.

#tweetscapes / HVL002

Germany’s first real-time Twitter sonification.

#tweetscapes converts all German Twitter messages into an ever-evolving piece of collectively performed music. And more than that: #tweetscapes lets you experience what’s happening on Twitter right now in a totally new way. Listen to the rhythms of the social web, hear trending topics emerge. Become part of the stream.

#tweetscapes is available 24/7 on heavylistening.com/tweetscapes, but has also been shown numerous times as an audiovisual surround installation, for example as part of the seminal Sound Art exhibition at ZKM Karlsruhe.

We also show #tweetscapes as a live performance, which premiered at Berghain Club Berlin in 01/2012.

#tweetscapes received a Prix Ars Electronica Award in 2012.

The original sub-bass concert for tuned cars.

TIEFDRUCKGEBIET – "low pressure area" – is a mobile concert for twelve cars with massive sub-woofers. Each individual car only plays a single ultra-low tone, tuned to the dimensions of the street. Together, they form an orchestra and collectively create sub-sonic rhythms that are rather felt than heard.

TIEFDRUCKGEBIET premiered at 48h Neukölln Berlin 2011 and won the First Art Prize of the festival. Only five sub-woofers survived.

The second TIEFDRUCKGEBIET took place at Ars Electronica 2012 and was one of the festival’s highlights.
