SUBSONIC

 

Shortly after the publication of Jules Verne’s novel Paris in the 20th Century, in 1994, Bert Wrede and Peter Lang decided to transform this wild subject into a sound composition. In 1996 they produced an installation of eight channels with voices and sounds for an exhibition in the Technical Collections of the Museum of Dresden,The Thing Between.The sounds were derived from a 12-cylinder emergency power system, a so-called submarine diesel motor from Charité Hospital in Berlin.The voices were those of Bert Wrede’s daughter, twelve years old at the time, and of professional actresses.
