Tiefwerder Wiesen Wanderungen (Live at Swamps and Stars – On Planetary Listening 2023) [2023, Felicity Mangan, 20:16]

Tiefwerder Wiesen Wanderungen was presented as a live performance at Swamps and Stars – On Planetary Listening, on May 13th, 2023 at Bruno H. Bürgel Observatory, Berlin.This live performance, composed for Swamps and Stars – On Planetary Listening, is inspired by the wildlife, terrain and daily activity of Tiefwerder Wiesen – a swampy grassland on the other edge of Berlin, Germany.

Alluding to science fiction-like soundtracks, the sound piece features modified samples taken from field recordings recorded at Tiefwerder Wiesen in April 2023. Capturing the natural reverberation of the wildlife inhabitants and human visitors heard from different perspectives along the walking tracks, are transformed into synth-sounding drones and an assemblage of field recordings: the combination of a real and imaginary sounds of Tiefwerder Wiesen.
