The Engelbecken and the Luisenstädtische Kanal between Kreuzberg and Mitte have an extremely eventful history: they were broken up during the imperial era, filled up during the Weimar period, turned into a garden and again filled with concrete as a strip of the Berlin Wall. Today, these historic layers are barely noticeable, and Georg Klein, who has known the site since 1987, undertakes an acoustic archeology, immersing the sound stroller in scraps of memory and musical time travel.

1848 - 1926 - 1961 - 1989 - 2008

For this purpose, the archive material was arranged in different time layers, re-played on site with loudspeakers and re-recorded with binaural micro­phones, so that the past appears acoustically embedded in the present.
