Under the title „Schattenklänge“ Achim Vogel Muranyi and Peter Vogel Heritage present two interactive sound walls from different eras in the historic rooms of the former knight’s castle Vischering in Lüdinghausen. The analog sound wall “Rhythmic Sounds I” by Peter Vogel from the 1990s – an electronic wall installation with 18 light sensors – and the digital sound wall “Techno Soundwall” by Achim Vogel Muranyi from the present – a computer-programmed variant based on audio samples. Both sound walls are inspired by club and techno music and can be played intuitively – also by the audience.
Both artists are linked by a close collaboration. While the artist Peter Vogel, who died in 2017, laid the foundation of interactive sound-object art, Achim Vogel’s work can be seen as a logical further development. Differences as well as similarities are not only of a technical nature, they also reflect their own zeitgeist in terms of content, which is particularly clear in the juxtaposition of their sound walls.
