Bernhard Wöstheinrich – Letterpress Soundscapes

Materiaal Series, Part 059

Music for the opening of the exhibition titled “Weil es wirklich wichtig ist” (“Because it really matters”) by Manfred Makowski, which took place at the house of the county council Gütersloh, October 27, 2022.

The main subject of this exhibition were historical methods of printing. Manfred has made it his duty to preserve these techniques and to work creatively with them. Hence this present music session includes sounds and noises from various letterpress machines and other ambient sounds from printing plants and the like.
