Create your own Hamburger Bahnhof soundscape with Margaux and Nick Höppner.

By Staff

On 17 and 18 June, Hamburger Bahnhof will host an Open House weekend, with all exhibits at the renowned Berlin museum made free-to-attend, plus a range of extra activities and events.

Refuge Worldwide has been invited to host a field recording tour of Hamburger Bahnhof's historic hall. Beginning at 11:00 on 17 June, our resident Margaux will take participants around the space gathering sounds. Nick Höppner will then lead a workshop showing participants how to mix and layer these recordings - which will be captured on phones or on microphones provided - in order to create a live soundscape.

Refuge Worldwide has also curated a selection of archive radio shows which will be played at the Hamburger Bahnhof silent disco. During the disco, participants will be allowed to draw on the walls of the room, inspired by the music they’re hearing.

People of all ages and audio experience levels are welcome and no sign-up is necessary. The session will be held in both English and German.
