In collaboration with transmediale and CTM, Akademie der Künste opens the installative recomposition of Jan-Peter E.R. Sonntag’s RUNDFUNK AETERNA X – A Radio Opera on 1 February 2019. The symphonic/spatial work, which was commissioned by documenta 14 and broadcasted worldwide in 2017, invites the public to move through a multidimensional space. Instrumental soloists, the sonradiaGrid, an Audion radio circuit, a large diffraction-horn system, a transistor radio as well as antennas and receivers for ELF waves—a natural radio—are involved in the space/sound experience. The technique of the apparatus is a constitutive part of the art. It is also the first presentation of the sonradiaGrid, consisting of newly developed acoustic omnidirectional radiators from Sonntag’s lab: N-solab.

RUNDFUNK AETERNA X – a Radio Opera by Jan-Peter E.R. Sonntag—is a production of N-solab sponsored by Capital Cultural Fund (Hauptstadtkulturfonds). It has its world premiere as an installation at the Academy of Arts and will be presented in collaboration with CTM and transmediale 2019. The installation version is based on a studio production commissioned by documenta 14 supported by Deutschlandfunk Kultur.
