Korinsky Sound Installation

August 22, 2018

This Berlin-based art collective will create a site-specific sound installation in the cathedral that will explore the human voice, playing with the four different phases of verbal sound – attack, decay, sustain and release – and working with the acoustics of the cathedral to create a composition of voices.

You can experience this day’s installations from 1 pm to 3pm and 7:30 pm to 10 pm.

The installation will culminate in a live set on Sunday, August 26 using the material of voices like an orchestra and the acoustics of the cathedral to spin sounds through the space – the programmed installation and this live interaction with sound will merge in this performance.

Visiting the sound installation is free; tickets are required for the live performance and are available here.

These events are presented in partnership with the Goethe-Institut San Francisco.

About the Artists

Abel, Carlo and Max Korinsky collaborate together as Korinsky atelier für vertikale flächen (Korinsky Studio for Vertical Surfaces). Korinsky is inspired by the science of the human ear and seeks to expand what we both see and hear and to change the perception of space and architecture through sound. Korinsky has recently completed residencies in Australia, Iran and South Korea and their work has also been shown throughout Europe.
