an 1-day event that explores the evolving relationship between humans and the natural world. An invitation to revisit the core of our relationship with nature and examine how technology, academic research, and science have altered it.
The new vinyl release presents a collection of tracks that were developed in close collaboration with the contributors of the "i can’t hear you" event series that took place in summer 2021 in Changing Room in Berlin.
Music from other species“
For one evening in Changing Room, a new assembly and a new performance with new participants.
With the sonographic iconography as a backdrop, twelve people vocalize twelve rat-calls in an arrangement based on social dynamics of rats.
Simon Faithfull and Tatiana Echeverri Fernandez discuss how Faithfull's efforts to embody the landscape can act as a lens through which we might see ourselves.
Re: Empathy The Nature
Embodied sounds and vital organs serve as the starting point to engage with other beings and landscapes. By situating herself within her organs, Stella allows the inside of the body to come into communicate with the outside.
17 December at 8pm

Chanting of the Last Days
Audio recordings and vinyl records of dolphins and frogs from the media archive of Tim Tetzner
Is recording the voice of an animal a gain or a loss? Conservationists and zoologists would say both. But have field recordings and behavioural studies helped to move one step further into the mysterious realm of interspecies communication? At this point, not really. Or did all those studies and explorations prepare for an upcoming CETI / Communication with Extraterrestrial Intelligence event as Laurance Doyle proposed? Possibly we will know better in the near future. But for now - in the dawn of the last days - we had better remain indifferent ... But wasn't it John C. Lilly - the High Priest of Samadhi Level 3 and spokesman for the Dolphin Spirit himself - who first locked the Dolphin's voice into a vinyl groove? And can Mr. Lilly be held responsible - or does it primarily take a US court to recognise the animal as a legal person, as happened on 31 July 2020 in the Southern District of Ohio?

Fluid Ecotonalism as part of Changing Room's ongoing research program:
we invite you to hear the outcome of Fluid Ecotonalism 3.0, "Plötzensee".
Fluid Ecotonalism is a collaborative transdisciplinary, practical, and poetic proposal that aims to empathize with bodies of water that are also considered ecotones – spaces of transition from one ecosystem to another. The project is an ongoing process and research that takes the form of an ecosomatic workshop carried out in conjunction with bodies of water, from which results derive into different translations that are finally integrated through sound.
We invite you to join us on 7th and 8th of May to welcome the composer and performer, Abigail Sanders, with her musical performance and accompanying talk, "Sounding Whales”.
"Sounding Whales" is a project that explores the song of the humpback whale with the help of the French Horn. At Changing Room, Abigail Sanders will present her work in the form of a concert and talk.
Saturday, May 7th at 7 pm
Sunday, May 8th at 4 pm
There will be an opportunity to donate to the non-profit whale research and conservation organization, Ocean Alliance, founded by Dr. Roger Payne.
