singuhr – projects berlin presents the sound installation eleven songs - halle am berghain by Berlin-based artist duo Sam Auinger and Hannes Strobl (tamtam). Their installation transforms the machine hall of the former Berlin-Friedrichshain district heating plant into a unique resonance space. Specially concepted for the sheer size and architecture of the solid concrete venue, the new work by tamtam activates the imposing architecture of the room ensemble through acoustic means. The industrial hall with the gigantic coal chutes hanging from the ceiling and its massive pillars is both a backdrop and a frictional surface. Visitors are continually met by new sonic conditions, moods and sonorous perspectives. The room as an instrument.

Sam Auinger and Hannes Strobl have a longstanding artistic friendship that is expressed in many joint compositions and sound installations. Since 2003 the two artists, who both live in Berlin, have been developing a series of works named farben/raumfarben. farben/raumfarben are both site-specific long-term compositions and poetic sound spaces in which the viewers experience a place as an instrument. Each composition is formed by by the architectural, functional and social characteristics of the given space, which are reflected in its sound, its noises and rhythms. In their new raumfarben installation eleven songs - halle am berghain, tamtam for the first time make the functional architecture of a post-industrial space ensemble speak.
