once below (2015) is a double quadraphonic sound installation with intermittent soloists, which focuses on time, place and our ever-changing contexts of hearing. The entire work is based on recordings made in a bunker underneath Gesundbrunnen Station, Berlin. Most of the sounds recorded are not audible to our naked ears. They are hidden and yet feel very real and present. These sounds themselves adhere to their own rhythm and time, in which we play little part. This work brings many aspects of Karen’s work together in a very special and unique venue; Kapelle der Versöhnung (Chapel of Reconciliation). Here, the two sound installations are naturally separated through the chapel dome offering audiences the opportunity to experience a creative manipulation of hidden and audible from this special world below. 4 soloists will ‘drop-by’ to perform a short composed piece in the outer space at numerous times throughout each day, which offers yet another context, another time, another space that changes how we hear everything.
