Our 2018–2019 show «Radiophonic Spaces» spawned radio programmes and dramas on a wide variety of subjects and many of these are well worth listening to again. That exhibition also sharpened visitors’ sensitivity to the acoustic dimension of the museum in general and of Tinguely’s works in particular. The acoustic dimension of our lived experience is all the more important at a time when images – both moving and fixed – are omnipresent.
Florian Hohnhorst is a freelance creator of radio dramas who in January 2019 took visitors to «Radiophonic Spaces» on audio-expeditions through the museum. Those expeditions then provided him with material for a new audio piece:

In addition to Tinguely’s sounds, we’ve also got an audio-expedition by Florian Hohnhorst for you. This hopefully will inspire you to ‘tune in’ more carefully to the sounds of everyday life. How does your coffee machine sound? Your fridge? Your computer? Why not record these noises with your phone and compose your very own ‘audio-expedition through my apartment’? (There’s plenty of editing software that can be downloaded free of charge – Audacity, for example).
We look forward to hearing your audio-expeditions and wish you lots of fun making them!
