Sound scape used in the piece “Die Wand der Illusion” an experimental radio/ radio art piece realized by Sol Rezza for the project “Eine akustische Kartierung der Stadt” in the frame of the Radio Art Residency held by the community radio Radio Corax in Halle (Saale), Germany.

This sound scape is mentioned in the mural entitled “Stadt / Die Wand der Illusion” by the German artist Hans-Joachim Triebsch during 1998 and lately restored in 1992 and 2002.

What makes this sound scape interesting is that then artist mentioned a very especific and non-existant address: “Geiststraße 8”. There’s only a number 9 and a number 10 (number 8 never actually appears when you walk down the street). On the other hand, “Geiststraße” in German translates as “Ghost Street”, which could actually explain the missing address.

This mural is located at the intersection of Große Klausstraße and Oleariusstraße, both streets at Halle (Saale).
