Sterntaler is a sound installation made by the Berlin based collective hands on sound. Accompanying an exhibition of gold jewelry made by young designers from Berlin, they attempted to resemble the sound of gold dust.

The team placed 70 piezo disks on the window and walls of the exhibition space. Metallic sounds were played through these little speakers, creating a whispering invitation to passers by to enter the store. I love the subtlety of this installation. We don’t need heavy amps and subs all the time.

Amazing work. I have heard that piezo disks can record sound, had no idea that they can be used as speakers too. Would you like to share how this was done?

Ha Samia, yes, just like you can also record sound through headphones (ok the quality won't be that good..). If you want to know more about the project I advice you click the link in the article and ask the makers of the installation. Tell them I sent you ;-)
