The SOUND PARCOURS Lüneburg presents acoustic artistic works at 15 sound stations in the Kurpark. These sound collages and compositions have been developed on the basis of research and by collecting sound material by students of Leuphana University Lüneburg and Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts Kiel. The project “Sound in Transition” is a cooperation project of the “Offenes Atelier” at the Künstlerhaus Lauenburg with the Leuphana University Lüneburg and the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts Kiel. QR-codes at the sound stations make it possible to experience selected artistic works in the Kurpark.

In the summer semester 2021, the focus will be on field research, acoustic investigation on site and the transformation of found sounds. For the SOUND PARCOURS, artistic works by former scholarship holders from the Künstlerhaus Lauenburg will complement the selection of works presented.

The cross-university, interdisciplinary sound research project builds as a new project in the summer semester 2021 on existing collaborations of the Open Studio at Künstlerhaus Lauenburg with Leuphana University Lüneburg and Muthesius Kunsthochschule Kiel.

The composition and sound research project Sound in Transition is based on an association of universities with cultural venues and functions as a digital artistic experimental laboratory in which audiovisual sound installations and compositions are created. The basic structure of the project is collective and democratic. The participants compose and improvise with each other, discuss and develop new audiovisual forms of design. In this way, the students gain access to improvisational and experimental forms of design in the artistic field in an aesthetically playful and exploratory manner and can gain experience with digital media as instruments and production tools. The project will culminate in a series of audiovisual events at 3 locations, in which digital and performative elements combine and address the boundaries between physical presence and absence.
Through listening, events, range, spaces, as well as their density, complexity and changeability are revealed to us in a special way. Based on the acoustic exploration of urban sound environments and the collection of sound material, sound compositions are to be conceived with students, which particularly focus on structures and changes of urban space. The focus will be on structures and changes in urban space. A new, process-oriented mediation format will be developed, which can also be implemented under pandemic conditions or location-independently and supra-regionally. The work process as well as the final audiovisual presentation forms focus on digital and media formats and link them in performances and temporary installations at the 3 locations Kiel, Lüneburg, Lauenburg. Central to this is the investigation of how digital and analog worlds are consciously combined and how aesthetic practices, forms, content can be developed as hybrid formats in the context of current media culture. In interaction with the architecture on site, moving, living spaces/formats are created in which the boundary between digital and non-digital becomes blurred. The project includes the theoretical fields of cultural, media and educational sciences, sound studies and mediation, as well as free art, guest contributions and a joint artistic-practical work. The exchange between the participants takes place on a digital platform developed within the project. The result is a digital network, an archive and a new kind of interactive collaboration.
