What is now Liquid Sound startet with a remarkable event. The „1. Frankfurt Under Water Concert“ on Feb. 23rd. 1986 called courageous artists and audiences to take to the waters in a public pool, with the vague aspiration of transforming it to a concert hall.

 

 

Interspecies musician Jim Nollman brought underwater speakers he had used for playing music with free roaming Orca whales in the North Pacific. Urban musicians from Frankfurt heard the call and joined in the experiment.  The media went crazy and no one could tell was it avantgarde or shamanism or confusion? Perhaps it was love in the broadest possible sense. And it opened the water to a new concept of art and bathing.
