Thank you for visiting Lausitz Klang.

My name is Kat. Join me in telling the story of Lusatia through sound.

I am interested in the sounds of Lusatia, and how they are changing. The research for This Land is Not Mine took place between 2020 and 2022, and involved gathering different sounds in Lusatia. I explored Lusatia with special equipment that allow me to record sounds from the water, land and air. I also recorded the animals and plants. I used these sounds to make an artwork that explores how sound and identity are changing in Lusatia.

What sound characterises Lusatia?

Over the course of the project, residents in and visitors to Lusatia contributed sounds that they felt characterised teh region. Through this site, I shared my methods for listening and recording sound and provided an upload page for contributing sound to This Land is Not Mine. I used some of the sounds to compose a song telling my interpretation of the changing identity of Lusatia.

In ‘This Land is not Mine’, I explore the diverse identities of Lusatia. ‘This Land is not Mine’ is an independent artistic research project that has no connections to regional or supra-regional political parties or actors.

I and my team are happy to answer any further questions you may have about the objectives and content of the project. Join in the conversation in the comments, get in touch by email to enquiries@katausten.com or write to the address below.
