The folks at Resident Advisor present 3 electronic music artists creating sounds in the ruins of a Cold War listening station :
The subject of our first Frequency Response is “history,” but Teufelsberg evokes so much more than that. Its name translates to “Devil’s Mountain,” although it’s actually an artificial hill — and the highest point of elevation in Berlin — built from World War II rubble. Underneath the site is the Wehrtechnische Fakultät, an unfinished Nazi military-technical college. “The Allies tried using explosives to demolish the school, but it was so sturdy that covering it with debris turned out to be easier,” says Wikipedia. These days Teufelsberg is known as the site of a former US National Security Agency listening station, but down the years it’s also been home to a 24-metre ski ramp and a failed attempt to redevelop the space with apartments and hotels.
The musicians are Modeselektor, Laurel Halo and Loctic. All three excel and making sound collages out of the eery echos found in this cold war relic.
