Environmental sound for a virtual exhibition at Zeche Zollverein
ZECHE is a digital interpretation of Zollverein. Here, the industrial monument and UNESCO world heritage site is being transformed into a post-apocalyptic jungle. Using synthetically generated sound sources, a hyperreal sound world has been composed to a leading motive of the virtual exhibition of the Zollverein site. The visitor passes through an artificial reality of sounds, some of which seem unfamilliar, whose natural movements and dynamics become the basis of a breathing, hybrid ecosystem.
The festival platform is a unique "Art-in-Art"-Experience and functions as a digital exhibition and workshop space. ZECHE features works from the New Now artists in residence as well as nine additional artistic positions – including digital sculptures, video works, virtual performances and more. Open to all, the virtual festival platform is interactive and accessible worldwide via the Internet.
