Annea Lockwood: Dusk

The electro-acoustic piece Dusk by sound artist Annea Lockwood is about seven minutes long and combines the low-frequency sounds of so-called "black smokers", hydrothermal vents at the bottom of the deep sea, with transposed bat sounds and percussionist William Winant playing the flat gong. Dusk can be heard every day at sunset during the festival in the outdoor area of HKW via loudspeakers directed towards the Spree. Deep-sea sounds, flying creatures and an almost human-sized instrument could hardly be further apart geographically, but Lockwood brings them into associative and sonic proximity.
