During a four-week studio residency at the Atelierhaus Dosenfabrik in Hamburg, the author Marie-Alice Schultz and I created a participatory sound installation in 6.1.
Thematically and formally, the work deals with voice messages, which have gained in importance as a form of communication in recent years. Visitors were invited to record their own messages via a tin can telephone booth and contribute to the creative process. The messages where transcribed by a speech-to-text software, re-read and played back, through tin can telephones in varying combinations of materials used, several times and transcribed again. The resulting "misunderstandings" became the basis for textual and musical content.

From August 10th to August 20th, 2023, we carried out the second version of 'Speicher,' both in front of the 18th-century brewery and inside its ice house. As part of the 'Internationale Bauaustellung Thüringen,' our focus this time was particularly on the personal stories and memories of the inhabitants of the small town Döschnitz, related to the house where we spent ten amazing days.
