During our first few days at Sproutbau we recorded a soundwalk around the building; all our first impressions of the site were put on tape. One of the strangest moments was finding a flat still full of someones belongings; amongst the stuff we found two cassette tapes. On one we found a compilation of obscure party songs from the 80s spliced with a recording of a man and child counting and some skits from German comedian obviously recorded from the television. We created from the tapes our own sound interpretation of the room. We wanted to create the feeling of a past still existing in the present; broadcast from a now empty room to be heard by those who want to hear. We hope this creates some kind of tribute to this stranger.
