Concept:
The sound installation consists of 12 parts. Each part represents a specific approach to sound\music, or a specific way of working with sound material.

Approaches and working methods: soundtrack; noise; drone; collage; cut up; composition; melody; percussion; field recordings in the vicinity; looping; extracting sounds from the vault with various objects; electronic and acoustic instruments; atmospheric; abstract; concrete; romantic; the formats of the space translated into the duration of sounds; re-recordings of sounds via sound carriers placed in the vault; digital editing; analog devices; layered and rich next to subtle and minimal – the visionary eye and the carpenter's view.

The 12 segments are the result of both literal and figurative interactions with the vault:
Sounds were made and recorded in and around the vault with the materials, surfaces present there and the specific spatialities. These recordings have been processed, together with, among other things, contributions made by 5 sound artists at my request, based on photos of the place:
Jacob DeRaadt (US) – musique concrète.
Hopek Quirin (Germany) – recordings of fire.
Jonathan Bergen (Germany) – harsh noise.
John Hudak (US) – recording of salt on ice.
Gijs Gruijters (The Netherlands) – modular synthesizer.
(see below for more details)

In order to more accurately 'determine' the location, it has also been viewed from its history - in particular the Second World War - and its position in the area. Elements from the environment and the past penetrate the space and the present.

With these 12 approaches or languages, the space is defined in 12 different ways.
The vault speaks in 12 different ways, depending on the language used.
The whole forms an idea of metamorphosis, abolition of boundaries, fluidity and multidimensionality of both the space and the phenomenon of sound.

The vault is not the place in which a sound work is presented – the installation is the means by which the vault presents itself – in a state of permanent transformation.

John Hudak (US) – recording of salt on ice.
“The sound appealed to my sense of what the space looks like in the photos.
A recording was made on January 26, 2022, of the broadcasting of salt on sheets of ice that had formed on the driveway surrounding my house. The salt pellets hit the sheet of ice and crackles as it starts melting into it, as well as traveling/sliding until they come to a stop. I left a lot of time between throws of salt to be able to hear the pellets come to a stop. The manipulation process was simply slowing down the speed of the sound, and adjusting the equalization to make the sound more crisp.”
