Listening experience with conversation

Known for her raw storytelling approach melding performance art, music, dance and film, composer and artist Pan Daijing’s multi-sensorial approach to music comes alive on the 360-degree spatial sound system in the Reethaus as part of Soundwalk Collective’s “Transmissions” series.

This listening experience tracks the use of the human voice and operatic techniques in Daijing’s work. Including sonic fragments and compositions from across her practice, Reethaus presents spatialized arrangements of a series of works that have never before been experienced outside of the live performances, exhibitions or installations in which they first appeared.

Spatialized by MONOM, the listening experience takes place in the inner room of the Reethaus, an intimate space where audience and artist are in close communion. Food, wine, sake and cocktails will be served over the course of the evening, and the listening session will be followed by a conversation between Pan Daijing and Andrea Lissoni, curator of her upcoming solo exhibition at Haus der Kunst in Munich and of the 2019 Tate Modern debut performance of her five-act opera “Tissues.”



Soundwalk Collective invites key influences and frequent collaborators featured across their extended body of work to participate in a series that samples from the past 60 years of sonic arts. Reflecting a personal view on collaboration as an essential aspect of the creative process, the series presents a broad summary of the sonic landscapes that they have developed over the past two decades. Seminal masterworks and newer pieces blend into a cohesive yet varied ensemble that spans musique concrète, performance art, contemporary and mystical music. All of these genres have in common a meditative dimension, a transitional nature that has been at the core of Soundwalk Collective’s work.

Previous dates of the series:


Pan Daijing

Pan Daijing is a Berlin-based artist and composer who primarily engages with performance, installation, sound and moving images in her practice. Drawing on the capacity of music to exceed the limits of language and distort the passage of time, Daijing’s work seeks to communicate physical, psychological and sonic depths, and to invoke a collective experience of solitude. Alongside her three studio albums, Daijing has developed and exhibited a number of performance artworks and installations, including the five-act opera “Tissues” at Tate Modern, London.


Andrea Lissoni

Andrea Lissoni is since April 2020 artistic director of the Haus der Kunst in Munich. Formerly Senior Curator international Art (Film) at Tate Modern, where he commissioned “Tissues” by Pan Daijing, he previously served as curator at HangarBicocca (2009/13) in Milan, co-founded and co-directed the international festival Netmage (2000-2013) and co-curated the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement at the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève (OGR Torino, 2019). He launched his program at Haus der Kunst with the sound and music residency series “Tune” and a series of intertwined exhibitions by Fujiko Nakaya, Dumb Type, Carsten Nicolai, Christine Sun Kim and Tony Cokes, followed by “Inside Other Spaces. Environments by Women Artists 1956—1976,” which is currently on show alongside exhibitions by WangShui, Martino Gamper and Meredith Monk. Pan Daijing will open a solo exhibition at Haus der Kunst in spring, 2024.
