MEATGRINDER I (gammastrahlung) is a 4-channel audio installation. Audio tracks are reproduced in the room via four directional loudspeakers. Each track/loudspeaker corresponds to a voice in the audio piece. The loudspeakers are partly directed towards the listeners, partly arranged in the room. Speech is projected directly to the listeners via ultrasonic speakers. The sound is experienced very physically and perceived exclusively at the listening position.

The object "MEATGRINDER II (Un)" provides the acoustic background information to the Meatgrinder cycle. The object houses 8 cassettes, whose titles refer to details in a nameless building.
Building elements, corridors, corners, objects, installations and systems. The cassettes contain abstract sounds (drones), radio play fragments, noise, sound folding through hall experiments and
alienated field recordings.
The object "Un" can be read as a soundtrack to the Meatgrinder cycle. At the same time, it represents an object of its own, aesthetically located in a different time.
