Video documentation "Sound Cake" by Knut Remond and the ohrenhoch-Kids.
The video "Sound Cake" shows in different small clippings how the ohrenhoch-Kids (7-13 years old) are on the move in Berlin-Neukoelln with tape "field recordings".
On the occasion of the celebration of 650 years Neukoelln the ohrenhoch-Kids undertook
acoustic rambles, field recording excursions with the tape across the pulsating Berlin-Neukoelln
every week, collecting sounds in streets, on squares, in parks and buildings.
A small camera was used, alternately by Knut Remond (director of the ohrenhoch-Kids) and by the children (ohrenhoch-Kids), filming as well during their sound reccordings.
"Sound Cake" also shows the subsequent realization of the field recordings for the exhibition "Sound Cake, Sound Cabbage, Sound Banana, Sound Apple, U7" at 'ohrenhoch, der Geräuschladen'.
In this video, also the fascinating process is shown how the ohrenhoch-Kids produced sound objects and sound-space-installations with their field recordings.
This sound-, object- and space-installation entitled "Sound Cake, Sound Cabbage, Sound Banana, Sound Apple, U7" was presented in the sound gallery 'ohrenhoch, der Geräuschladen' in Berlin-Neukoelln on the occasion of the art festival '48-hours-Neukoelln' in June 2010.
