Harvestworks welcomes Carsten Seiffarth, founder and manager of the SINGUHR Sound Gallery in Berlin, Germany. The SINGUHR Sound Gallery in parochial Berlin has been established as an internationally renowned center for sound art since 1996. Seiffarth will present a discussion on the meaning and context of sound art, as well as SINGUHR's history and previous sound art installations. In the Fall of 1995, the initial ideas for a gallery for listening took on concrete dimensions. It's resplendent success was not predicted. SINGUHR's location is a parochial church in Berlin's Mitte district. It was here that the only glockenspiel and carillon, a "singuhr" or "singing clock", in Berlin was housed until it was destroyed in 1944. This "singing clock" inspired the sound art gallery's name. The gallery's opening featured Erwin Stache's Sound Boxes
