A Sound Installation

Die Hexenküche (The Witch’s Kitchen) was the colloquial nickname for the electronic music studio at the WDR radio station in Cologne, called as such by conservative critics and skeptical audiences who questioned its aesthetic relevance. For composers such as Ligeti, however, the WDR studio was a utopia for creating truly avant-garde music. This installation reimagines the compelling and strange electronic sounds of the studio. Come immerse yourself in the soundscape of mid-century modernism.
