The Collegium Hungaricum Berlin was established in 1924 and re-opened its doors on historical grounds in Berlin-Mitte, Dorotheenstraße 12, in November 2007. The new institute was designed in the style of Neobauhaus and demands for contemporary contents and forms of expression. Over the course of the past two years the .CHB has emerged as an excellent centre for art and media within the cultural landscape of Berlin-Mitte. Since 2008 Collegium Hungaricum Berlin has been hosting projects on the intersection of art, science and research in close conjunction with transmediale. At transmediale.11, .CHB is delighted to present the sound installation EXTENDED ATMOSPHÈRES by Jan-Peter E.R. Sonntag (de) and Edwin van der Heide (nl) and the video installation timescape, and host the Open Web Book Sprint.

 

Edwin van der Heide and Jan-Peter E.R. Sonntag ‘re-stage’ / open up the compositional and spacious Atmosphères. György Ligeti wrote the piece in 1961 and in the same year it was premiered by the SWF Orchestra in Donaueschingen. ATMOSPHÈRES is a radical response to serialism. In 1968, Stanley Kubrik used a recording of the piece as a sample ‘atmosphere’ in shooting his film 2001: A Space Odyssey, commissioned it for the score, and over night ATMOSPHÈRES became famous as film music. In 2011, ten years after the virtual odyssey and fifty years after the film’s premiere, van der Heide and Sonntag enter into a sonic discourse with Ligeti’s futuristic audio icon.
