nikola hamacher, paulina hoffmann, judith kaminski, stefanie klingemann, vera
lossau, ulrich möckel, benjamin nachtwey, karla paredes k., sven piayda, mira
sasse, dirk schlichting, maximilian siegenbruk and petra deta weidemann.
PARK HAUS is an exhibition of the emschertal museum in cooperation with the cultural
office of the city of herne.
sven piayda contributes a sound piece called
'abyss' (2021). the hour-long audible work slowly fuses lower pitched birdsong
with the steadily falling shepard tone, all in the ambient hiss of saturn's rings.
into its nadir ring 12 chimes, reflecting the 12 semitone steps of the entire
octave retraced downward. the sound installation was created exclusively for ‘stadt
park haus’ on request of katrin lieske and contrasts natural sounds with artificial
provision and processing in relation to the given space.
