"How many ways are there to listen to a place? ``Sonic Topologies'' presents a wide range of sound research in Zurich's urban landscape, underground and above ground, underwater and above water. This project explores the sounds and acoustics of empty reservoirs, botanical gardens, hot springs, and lakes. In June 2022, 6 sound artists, architects, and researchers held concerts, talks, walks, and workshops at these locations. Artists and scientists vibrate space, change its context, connect us to distant places and times, and enable encounters that transcend the boundaries of species and disciplines. Through its diverse methods and means, this project not only reveals different aspects and possibilities of place, but also includes a sonic It also provides a versatile toolbox for landscape research.

The first LP opens with the sonic stimulation of an empty water storage chamber. Long, reverberating vocal improvisations by Christian Zehnder and Saadet Turkes are followed by resonant instrumental pieces for horns and electronics by Canadian duo Reimer & Stein and Tomoko Sauvage's Waterbowl. The next work will energize the Käferberg hot springs with underwater and above-water speakers. Architect and composer Lee Tabor's synthesizer pieces allow you to hear the differences in the speed of sound, while Perilla's ambient pieces immerse you in an intimate world of voices and harmonic waves.
The second LP introduces the botanical garden's flora and fauna: a chronological montage of birds on a spring morning by sonic anthropologist Patricia Jaeggi. Laser recordings by biologists Juan López & Rok Sturm reveal the hidden vibrational world of summer insects. Electronic music by Banu Çiçek Tülü teaches us the history of botany. Five digital bonus tracks further explore the different layers of the garden and its surroundings. The record concludes with a live performance on the lake: Fabian Gutscher rows a boat on underwater piano wire, Email & Sartorius perform as a drum duo on two moving boats, and the Disappearing into the sonic horizon. At the end of each side is a sound exercise by the Frey & Koch duo, inviting listeners into their own environments and listening dimensions. "

Ludwig Berger:

“How many ways are there to listen to a place? “Sonic Topologies” presents a wide range of sonic research in Zurich's urban landscape—underground and above ground, underwater and on the water. The project explores the sounds and acoustics of an empty reservoir , a botanical garden, a thermal bath, and a lake. In June 2022, thirty sound artists, architects and researchers developed concerts, talks, walks and workshops for these places. Their contributions reveal hidden and overlooked sounds and voices; the artists and scientists make spaces vibrate, shift their contexts, and connect them to distant locations and times; they enable encounters across species and disciplinary boundaries. With its manifold methods and instruments, the project not only reveals different aspects and potentials of the sites, but also offers a versatile toolbox for sonic landscape research which we compiled in the form of a glossary of texts and photographs, as well as two vinyl records.

The first LP opens with acoustic stimulations of the empty reservoir chambers. Long reverberating vocal improvisations by Christian Zehnder and Saadet Türköz are followed by resonant instrumental pieces for horn and electronics by Canadian duo Reimer & Stein and Tomoko Sauvage's water bowls. The following pieces activate the Käferberg thermal bath with speakers both in and above water. A synthesizer composition by architect and composer Li Tavor makes the different speeds of sound audible, while Perila's ambient piece immerses us in an intimate world of vocal and harmonic waves.
The second LP introduces the fauna and flora of the botanical garden: A chronological montage by sound anthropologist Patricia Jäggi traces the morning birds in spring. Laser recordings of the biologists Juan López & Rok Śturm reveal the hidden vibrational world of summer insects. An electronic piece by Banu Çiçek Tülü tells us the history of botanical plants. The five digital bonus tracks explore further the different layers of the garden as well as its surroundings. The record closes with live performances on the lake: Fabian Gutscher rows a boat with underwater piano wires , and Emaille & Sartorius play a drum duo on two moving boats, disappearing into the acoustic horizon of the lake. Sound exercises by the duo Frei & Koch at the end of each side invite the listeners to explore their own environment and dimensions of listening.
