Experimental performance venue MONOM set to open in Berlin

A new experimental venue and state of the art spatial sound studio, named MONOM, is set to launch in Berlin’s Funkhaus on 1 December.

At the heart of the new space is the 4DSOUND system – a spatial instrument that can immerse 400 people within a space that includes 48 omnidirectional speakers suspended throughout the venue. As part of the system, there’ll also be nine subs beneath a transparent floor.

MONOM will be commissioning performances and artist residencies. For their two opening nights, the space will be playing host to artists who explore spatial sound, such as Posh Isolation’s Croatian Amor, PAN’s Helm, Hostflush’s PYUR and artist Thomas Ankersmit. Furthermore, MONOM will be presenting a series of lectures and a retrospective exhibition of sound sculpture on 9-10 December.

For their final instalment on 14 December, 4DSOUND pioneer Max Cooper will be taking to the spatial sound centre to premiere a composition. He’ll be supported by Italian minimalist electronic artist Caterina Barbieri.
