"Sehen mit Ohren / Seeing with Ears" is a composition exploring the acoustic perception of architecture. Six blind people living in Vienna discuss their perception of the city, space & architecture. Additional sound materials are various soundscapes of Viennese architecture recorded using a 5-channel surround-sound technique. Through the techniques of montage, overlay and alienation new acoustic spaces emerge while beginning to warp into dreamlike spaces.

Interviewees: Beatrix Klinger, Kerstin Tischler, Josef Knoll, Michael Krispl, Otto Lechner & Elisabeth Wundsam.

Recording of the 5-channel soundscapes: Martin Leitner

Interviews recorded: Vienna 2001

Composition, cutting, montage & recording the 5-channel soundscapes: Vienna 2005.

Duration: 35:06

Language: german
