Sound Studio Workshop II

Wed 13 | 10:00 - 16:00 | Other III

In cooperation with the Studio for Electroacoustic Music at the Akademie der Künste.

Peter Albrechtsen, Heikki Kossi

A crystal vase crashes, a piano plays madly on the ground floor, a child begins to wail. Sounds are often stories in their own right. Knowing this, the Sound Studio focuses on the development of sound and music in both documentaries and fiction films, bringing sound designers and composers together with the aim of creating unique forms of sonic storytelling. The participants benefit from a two-day workshop, led by mentors with lifetime experiences in their crafts and the spirit to improvise and try the unknown. By listening to and working with files brought in by the Talents from their home towns, different acoustic story worlds shall meet, collide, connect, and thereby influence and be influenced by the unique workshop space: Berlinale Talents proudly cooperates again with the Studio for Electroacoustic Music at the Akademie der Künste, a time machine into the living history of sound and a laboratory for performative and digital art.
