TUNE is a series of short sound residencies at Haus der Kunst where artists are invited to present different strands of their work in the form of live performances of solo works and collaborations, screenings, and installations. It brings a special focus to artists working primarily in sound, and the opportunity for audiences to dive deeply into their worlds and practices.

In 2022 the presentation of sound works continues in conversation with the exhibitions in the museum, with a focus on sound’s texture, form and modes of performance. The invited artists move across genres, eras, and influences. Their practices are intensely focused, whether on microtonal composition or on exploring and expanding the sonic possibilities of a single instrument. Works look at the finer details of how sound constructs and decomposes time, with structures that emerge and dissolve, and drift between clarity and opacity. The programme looks at the nature of making and performing sound, whether through collages and narrative driven works, walls of sound, tight composition, and improvisation.

Some of the artists appearing in the TUNE programme are also part of Echoes — a new live exhibition format Haus der Kunst presents in March 2022. Where in TUNE an artist working primarily with sound is invited to present two or more performances, like a solo exhibition for musicians, Echoes concept works more like a group show for artists working in sound, time-based media and performance. Adbullah Miniawy, William Basinski and Christelle Oyiri all perform several works presenting TUNE within Echoes.
