Biosphere RAD Performance
BIOSPHERE is an immersive concert series in urban space. Cyclists question the city as a sound sphere, its power effects and implications. Who has access to the acoustic arenas of everyday life? What determines the sound of (your) city?

Conny Zenk, Gischt, Verena Dürr, Suzie Léger, Ramona Cidej and Matthias Hurtl develop a multi-channel sound experience for our vegetative, technoid and velophile contemporaries and conspecifics.

June 26th, 7:00 p.m. (alternative date in case of rain: June 27th)

Route by bike: from the Donauauwald "big city jungle" in 1020 (Start: Corner of Engerthstrasse and Holubstrasse), to Floridsdorf Schlingermarkt, 1210 Vienna

Live concert: Flonky Chonks, around 9 p.m. at Schlingermarkt

Weather-related cancellations will be announced at least two hours before the start via RAD Performance Newsletter.
Registration for the tickets: radperformance.at/biosphere
Biosphere RAD Performance
A swarm of cyclists with mobile loudspeakers moves along the Danube to Floridsdorf. Starting from the last piece of Danube forest, tightly surrounded by residential buildings, we hear the noisy vibrations of the city. The ambient sounds tell of an intact environment. The acoustic appearance, the soundscape that surrounds us, is an indicator of the state of a system.

Sound excerpts and atmospheres of the city form the basis for the soundtrack of BIOSPHERE. Electrosmog clouds glimmer above the travelling drones of urban infrastructure. Fragments of voices and poetry overlay long-forgotten territories. Distorted sounds, cross our paths, stretch and amplify them. Traces of sounds connect conversations with places and patterns of memory.
How can cities be re-imagined through collective listening?


"Understanding sound as relational, as what may traffic across acoustics and electronics, bodies and machines, supporting contact with the world." – LaBelle, Brandon. Acoustic Justice, 2021
