To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, German-headquartered music service Soundcloud has created an acoustic representation of the divisive structure, 'the Berlin Wall of Sound'.
Created by Grey Berlin, the track uses quotes from some of the leaders of the German Democratic Republic and the tags throughout "depict the victims and mark where they were killed".
As it says on the post:
The Berlin Wall of Sound is an acoustic reconstruction of the Berlin Wall. Its duration of 7:32 minutes reflects the time sound needs to travel the 155 kilometres length of the Berlin Wall. Its sound wave’s shape mirrors the wall of concrete and its watchtowers. There are no comments ... The Wall of Sound is not easy to bear. But 27 years locked behind the concrete Berlin Wall were unbearable. Back in 1989, SoundCloud’s headquarters would have been part of the Death Zone next to the Berlin Wall. We dedicate the Wall of Sound to the 120 women, men and children, who lost their lives in their attempt to live in freedom. We will not forget.
