In june / july 2014 USAP was presented the first time in Berlin. Cooperation partner was C60 COLLABORATORIUM Berlin. 12-channel compositions and soundscapes were premiered at different urban locations via the unique USAP technology: at Aufbauhaus / Moritzplatz within the Fète de la Musique, at Tempelhofer Freiheit and at
James-Simon-Park / Berlin Mitte. Within an open call composers from all over the world were invited to realize own electro-acoustic compositions to be performed by USAP.
52 composers from all over the world did submit their works. It was a celebration of Sound Art in public space. Several composers were on location. Many many thanks to all who were involved.

- Some shots from USAP Flying-Audio-Relaxing-Space at Tempelhofer Freiheit.
So cool!! 50 composers mesmerized this very special place (the former Berlin airport with its incredible width of space) each with a totally different compositional conception. Hundreds of people entered the circle and were flashed immediatly. Some stayed for hours without a move.
An ecological Stonehenge of sound – 3 days were much too short.
- Aufbauhaus was great!!! First time we implemented the system into architecture.
The third dimension vertically! “Die Berliner Hängung” – and an unbelievable variety of spatial highly elaborated compositions from all over the globe. Thanks to Aubau Haus Team / planet modular, Just Music (for workshop space) and Holger Schulze (Sound Studies Lab). Thanks to all composers. Thanks to Sven!
There was a tiny rectangle of sky but we did not use our socket battery charger.
We played around 19 hours. This is remarkable (!!!) ….to be continued.
