These events seek to reinterpret Konstantin Melnikov’s plan for the building Sonata of Sleep. Melnikov, an architect during the Soviet era and after, believed sleep was the foundation of health and proposed to build a multi-sensory dormitory that used relaxing and soothing sounds to improve the quality of sleep for the shock-workers of the first five year plan. The architectural scheme was never realized in Melnikov’s lifetime. Now, Taiwan-based sound artists participating in this project will reconstruct Melnikov’s concept and build a sound sanatorium for workers who are exhausted by the constant bombardment of information in this post-industrial era.
