Berlin - techno, cobblestones and a lot of graffiti. In the urban hide-outs of Berlin little creatures come to life. These are digitally composed with waste collected from the streets and typical local products. The clatter of the limbs of these creatures interacts with the soundscape of Berlin: techno-beats, the buzzing of a tattoo-machine, street organ music, demonstration-chants, hammering of cobblestones. An acoustic image of Berlin is portrayed.
