"From midnight on 21 November 1999, the foyer of the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin was transformed into a sound laboratory. Within the framework of the media art festival intermedium 1, four teams of artists were invited to work on sound files before an audience under the title Audiolounge: Sound and Picture Electric Shocks Live: four hours of electronic music, something between a sound workshop and a club evening. Those taking part were: Robert Lippok, visuals: Visomat inc.; Andreas Ammer and Console, visuals: Anton Kaun; Kalle Laar and Georg Zeitblom, visuals: pReview; Robert Merdzo and Bülent Kullukcu, visuals: Lillevän/Computer Centre. The Berlin musician (To Rococo Rot) and graphic artist Robert Lippok opened the night with Callanetics and set the mood for the Audiolounge with gentle, digital sounds. Electronic minimalism from a laptop was the contribution of Kalle Laar and Georg Zeitblom. hypersound concrète stems from musique concrète: 'Music as electronic raw material: the starting point for manipulation and reconstruction.' The nearest to a concert performance was that of the Munich musicians Robert Merdzo and Bülent Kullukcu with not a question of balance. Electronics: Bülent Kullukcu, guitar, bass and vocals: Robert Merdzo. engine noises, voices, samples from the mixing desk coupled with the good old sound the electric guitar."
