Ambient-Sound-Installation for 24 loudspeakers and software

Arc offers space to pause, decelerate, and sensitize one’s perception. The vastness of the architecture, the view of the river Spree, the sounds and their movement in space create an environment that invites visitors to linger.

The material of the composition was derived from analog and digital processes and synthesis, field recordings and performed sound recordings.

A self-developed control software facilitates the movement of sounds in space.

Max Joy
Space-staging and art in public spaces, starting from sound, architecture and situational conditions, are the challenges for the site-specific installations by Max Joy. The choice of media and methods of realization depend on the individual project. Since the early 90ies these installations have been presented in locations as varied as foyers, ruins, skyscrapers, on the lake, or inside public transportation.
Stations along the way have been: the Electronic Art Festival in Antwerpen, the Kunst-Bunker in Nürnberg, the sensor Club in Berlin, a former bank building in Hessen, a modified urban railway - the sensor-Train on the north-south route in Berlin, the Ambient-Lounge at Haus des Lehrers Berlin Alexanderplatz, and much more...
