HEADROOM Nr. 1 was realised 2055 in Basel city. A multi dimensional 16 sound channel installation in a center shopping street of the city. A sound installation with a unheard power, authenticity, intensity and quality with 120 'invisible' placed speakers and a power of 40'000 watts. During the five day sound installation, every 20 minutes one of the six soundscapes was played.
Hyperreal daydreams and reality shifts emerged and where created in the mids of normal every day life in a public space. A new seeingly impossible space was created - out of the void. An intervention, seduction, dream, illusion. Imaginary worlds, unreal spaces, reality shifts and surprises. Headroom did not take place at its performance place at Gerbergasse but in the heads of passers by. Headroom was simply something that happend to them. Headroom simply accured. This power of an authentic sound field leads to a completely novel and high impact experience.
