The Lab2

The Lab 22.6 - 25.6.22 Kleiner Wasserspeicher, Diedenhofer Straße, im Park.


The Lab features a selection of works articulated around our ambiguous relationship to technology.

Part magic, part function, technology both stems from specific worlds, and shapes new worlds in return.

Through this back and forth, The Lab allows for open-ended, on-going research processes to be exhibited as works-in-progress.


Composing with sound spatialization

Sound diffusion across multiple speakers is an art form, especially where real-time control is concerned. This workshop by Juan Duarte Regino will focus on live sound spatialization techniques using Ambisonics and parametric-procedural diffusion methods.

Participants will bring to the workshop an existing sound piece that is suitable for diffusion across 4-8 channels.

At the end of the workshop, participants will setup their multichannel sound piece to be presented during The Lab in the unique sonic environment of the Kleiner Wasserspeicher.

We follow a sliding scale model:

  • Reduced tickets are intended for students and seniors.
  • Regular tickets are intended to help us pay off the space and equipment rental.
  • Supporter tickets allow us to pay the artists and the production team.

Tickets will be available at the door, both for exhibitions and for concerts.

However, due to limited capacity, we recommend that you buy tickets online in advance.


The Lab is organized by Automaton (Fanny Dreyer, Helin Ulas, Maria Karpushina, Anton Filatov, Pierre Depaz), with the help of Robin Weißenborn and Célestin Meunier for graphic design.
