Composition for Factory
The project Resonance Assembly by District studio grant artist Zorka Wollny investigates the former factory area of the Malzfabrik in Tempelhof-Schöneberg and its relicts of machinery as resonant bodies for a music of the forgotten and of transformation. In a series of concerts, a temporary ensemble consisting of musicians, cultural researchers, performers and amateurs activates the in-betweens of art, contemporary music, sound and performance and literally plays the factory.
In this environment formerly dominated by rhythms of industrial processing, their collaborative experiments transform abandoned rooms, apparatuses, tools and materials into a very different sequencing of sonic assembly. With classical music objects, everyday items and their own bodies, the group feels out, beats, pushes and transmigrates the old malthouse and its abandoned infrastructure. The series of minimalistic sound pieces bestow an acoustic presence to the factory’s quiet erosion and untold stories.
Along with the project, Resonance Assembly is released as music CD and art publication.
