PLEASE READ!

Hello,

I am glad you made it until here!

A tip to enhance performance, I recommend to download the walk via the little [↓414,4 MB BUTTON] next to [STREAM WALK].

ONE LAST IMPORTANT THING TO DO: After you tap [STREAM WALK] ([START] when downloaded) you will get to the 'MAP VIEW'. On the RIGHT HAND TOP, tap on the [THREE HORIZONTAL BARS] and [ACTIVATE AUTOPLAY].

Now, connect your headphones to your phone and you are good to go! Start the walk by moving through the circles on the map.

I wish you a pleasant walk, Alexander

T H E W H A L E S O N G P R O J E C T THE SONIC AGENCY OF AN ARCHITECTURE

De Fabriek Eindhoven is one of the oldest art initiatives in the Netherlands. It is situated in a former bookbinding factory with two main floors. A vast cellar with a series of concrete columns and a great hall with a vaulted ceiling. It's particular sound qualities and the sounds the building creates by itself are often topic of conversation during exhibitions and events at de Fabriek.

Alexander Johannes Heil sees the building as a huge instrument with it's own agency. From field recordings he took at de Fabriek during September and October 2022, he created a geo-located spatial composition wich stretches out towards the city of Eindhoven. Like in a cubist painting the spectator will experience the sound objects scattered, simultaneously, and overlapping in time and space while approaching the building.

Alexander Johannes Heil
Alexander Johannes Heil (born 1986 in Hamburg, Germany) received his B.Sc. in Architecture with a focus on architecture-theory and -design in 2017 at the Technical University Berlin and obtained his master's degree (M.Mus) in summer 2020 at the ArtScience Interfaculty (Royal Conservatory and Royal Academy of Art, The Hague). His work has recently been shown at the Royal Academy of Art The Hague, the Royal Conservatory The Hague, in group exhibitions in The Hague, and two solo exhibitions in Berlin (2017 and 2018). Currently he is exploring a new concept of space, which is analog to the dialectic of mold and cast. It considers global space filled with actual substances traveling throughout our planet, shaping each other through time and gravity and thus shaping the space we live in. This conception of space is called Substanzraum, the space of substance. www.alexanderjohannes.com
