Thu, 16.06.22 - Sun, 19.06.22 | all day | Talvogtei, rear side
Concept and realization comes from artist and artistic director of the festival Tanja Pannier
At the Talvogtei, a small path leads to the back of the building with seven stations and display boards, where festival visitors can enter a sound journey via QR codes: Noise and sound collages as well as some musical surprises refer to the seasons and make the own walk experienced with all senses. The sounds are inspired by the surroundings: a picturesque pond with a duck house, the fruit trees, the view into the nearby Black Forest. Benches and steps facing the water invite you to take a break from the festival rush.
To experience the Soundgarden, a smartphone and matching headphones are required.
You are all invited to sing with Christian Fris-Ronsfeld and Liz Swain at the festival's second hotspot, Schalampi, no matter if you are an amateur or a professional. Come by, meet great people and bring the place between festival office, Medi@thak and Bürgerscheune to sound.
