The Berlin Wall of Sound is a field recording project by J-Lab at first documenting the former route of the Berlin Wall – recorded in summer 2009 by Jonathan Dickens alias J-Lab and Frank Bogdanowitz alias Dr.Nojoke.
The field recordings are hosted and geotagged on 'radio aporee' on a project-map so that the Berlin Wall becomes visible again. (see link below)

To the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall both musicians, J-Lab and Dr.Nojoke, teamed up with Spanish multimedia artist Servando Barreiro for an audiovisual performance shown on the Netaudio Festival Berlin 2009 at the club Maria, which was located directly on the former deathstrip of the wall.
Over the last two years Paralelo jammed on the original sound-clips presenting now – in the 25th year after the Wall - a new interpretation of their performance in form of their debut album.

Jon explains the idea of the performance: “The great thing about digital music technology is the fact that you can take field recordings, samples and stuff, and completely destroy their original reference and context, move things. It’s like painting an impression in sound of what is now at the Wall, where the Wall stood. [...] I’ve put some musical motifs in and really all I do is select a sound which I think is apposite – just playing some field recordings, you get an emotional response to what you’re hearing, colouring it, putting the recording in a kind of frame.”


This album is dedicated to the memory of all those who fell and suffered in the Cold War, not only in Berlin, but everywhere.
