ears of a composer #2 “U7” w/ Nico Sauer
2 January 2021
The Ears of a Composer
The ears of a composer are ears that listen. They make you experience sound in a different way and discover music where you might not have suspected it.
This show is an acoustic wormhole to an adventurous world you can safely listen to from where you are, cozy and safe.
You will immerse in situations between documentation and fiction, between field recording and music.
Produced in binaural audio, it is recommended to be listening stationary, in a quiet environment, with ear or head phones.
Episode #2 – The Sound of U7
U7 is not a band. It’s a Berlin subway line. And it makes music and a lot of very peculiar sounds.
It is said that this line has a special acoustic ambience. Musicians from everywhere in the world come to play here.
Composers come in disguise to test their new pieces on the audience before they release them under their real names.
And of course they also do it for the extra money. And for the fun.
Enjoy the ride.
