Within Amalgamated Habitation : Nairobi/Berlin the two artists Kamaru Joseph (KMRU) and Ross Alexander utilise their respective collections of sound-walk field recordings made in Berlin and Nairobi to create interpretive and abstract sound maps of the two cities. These recordings are combined with extracted 3D mapping data and p-o-v video recordings of areas within the two metropolitan centres to create an immersive multi-media work. Using sonic and visual elements the work creates an impressionistic representation of similarity and contrast between the two places and aims to create a type of ‚amalgamated‘ imagined city-scape.
