Sonic Aggregator is a collaborative project of Tuned City and Soundtrackcity about ‘sonic placemaking’ hosted by ABA Air Berlin Alexanderplatz at Haus der Statistik in Berlin. With Peter Cusack, Vanessà Heer, Michiel Huijsman, Udo Noll. Sonic Aggregator has been long in the making and postponed several times due to covid measures, but finally this project is about to happen! The official opening is on 17 September. In the week thereafter presentations, workshops, soundwalks and a salon are open to the public. Have a look at the programme make reservations!

Who has the right to decide how our urban environment should sound?

This question is at the heart of the Sonic Aggregator project, in which everyone is invited to research the sound environment of HAUS DER STATISTIK from 17 to 27 September and speculate on the sounds of the future city. How does it sound now? How should it sound? Who or what determines that?

To enable this research and speculation we will install the listening art object Sonic Aggregator on site. The object – a modular, sculptural installation – invites people to linger, listen and interact, transporting and conveying the idea of urban sound, like a kind of Trojan horse, directly in the urban environment. While sitting in the object’s acoustically perfected semi-open sound space, visitors can virtually navigate through a defined part of the city via touchscreen and immerse themselves in the respective sound worlds.
