With the opening of MONOM at the historic Funkhaus on December 1st 2017, Berlin gains an experimental performance venue and state of the art spatial sound studio.

At the heart of MONOM is the 4DSOUND system. 4DSOUND is a creative and technical collective exploring spatial sound as a medium, collaborating with over 100 artists during a decade long period of research, experimentation and public performances to create a sophisticated spatial sound instrument, of which there is no comparison. This one of a kind instrument immerses up to 400 people inside 48 omnidirectional speakers suspended throughout the venue, extending to 9 powerful subs submerged beneath an acoustically transparent floor.

The 4DSOUND system

The 4DSOUND system is a spatial instrument. It provides a flexible, intuitive control platform for artists from different performative disciplines to experiment and express their ideas with a new dimensionality. An integrated hardware and software system, 4DSOUND creates a fully omni-directional sound environment in which you do not hear sound coming from speakers: instead, sounds appear in the space as independent physical entities. The 4DSOUND system cultivates a social listening space in which the listener and performer can interact, moving freely to explore a new physical environment of sound.


MONOM commissions artist residencies and public performances that will explore the possibilities of spatial sound as an expressive medium.

Beyond unprecedented real time control over sounds parameters, 4DSOUND pioneers the harmonious integration with any and all interfaces – movement, light, virtual augmented reality, bio-feedback, metric or brainwave - providing an opportunity for artists to collaborate and combine sensory dimensions - in effect to compose, and perform a live ecosystem.

MONOM will use this powerful integration as a summons to bring together not only sonic artists and musicians across genre and styles but also artists and technologists across disciplines –- solidifying MONOM as one of the world's premier immersive experience laboratories.

Endeavouring to work outside of the limiting frameworks of genre and style and to set no limits on the conceptual ambition of any artist, our growing family is sketching the outline of genres emerging, illuminating the richness of the Berlin art scene and contributing to its present and future development.


At MONOM the audience is enveloped completely within the artwork, enticed as active listeners to explore a shifting sonic landscape made up of dynamic sound arrangements that play with the laws of perception, and entirely subvert them.

From a single syllable floating in the breeze to a hurricane of choirs, from gentle waves of polyphony to lorries of bass that crash through the body of the room, audiences can expect experiences ranging from the most subtle and nuanced to the most intensely visceral, from healing and meditative to thought provoking and radical.
