Stumbling Bulb

A 4-channel sound design for a video projection dome by Max Fey and Jan Gassmann, in which images of sky and subway impressions slowly alternate. "Puppets" constructed of old TV sets adiitionally show short movies which have been submitted by international artists for this project. The whole installation reflects various notions of distraction head-in-the-clouds fairy tale character Hans im Glück. My contribution to this beautiful setting is the sound design of the subway rides in between the cloud projections in the dome. It tries to simulate the sonic reality of a subway ride while adding artificial sounds to emphasize the artefacts a camera captures while filming out of a train inside a subway tunnel. This work has been presented for several months in a dedicated space made possible with a grant by the Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen in Munich in 2008.
