Avant-garde cello in a highly distinctive environment

Use Radome to build an intriguing sonic environment with the raspy, overpressured sustains and harmonic-laden oscillations of a solo cello. Inject suspense with string scrapes, gull-like calls, hair-raising harmonic glissandi, and screeching trills.

Transformative patches combine the ambience of the distinctive acoustic space with heavy effects processing and layered synth textures to create a range of uncommon sounds. Select from an array of droning patches set in cavernous spaces. And draw from sounds that evoke the site’s ominous past, including electronic static, crackly interference, and electronic pulses as well as enigmatic, echoing noises and eerie winds.

Radome’s driving force
Radome’s driving force
Radome’s cello was played by Franziska Aigner—an accomplished cellist, vocalist, and composer. As a solo performer and recording artist, she frequently blends droning and ambient cello tones with dreamy, breathy vocals to produce atmospheric soundscapes. Her extensive background in dance and deep academic expertise in philosophy provide rich sources for creative expression.
Inside Radome
Inside Radome
The sounds of Radome were recorded at Berlin’s iconic Teufelsberg. German for ‘Devil’s Mountain’, Teufelsberg is a hill built with rubble from the second world war. The hill is also home to an abandoned Cold War listening station. And it’s here, inside the site’s largest radar dome (a large, spherical structure that protects a radar antenna from the elements), that we captured the unique acoustics and resonant ambiences for this collection.
