This paper explains the concept, technology and reality of the sound installation Adsonore. The important aspects of Adsonore are that it is interactive, continuously changing, permanent and located in a public space. The functioning of the human immune system lies behind its interactive design, the real-time sound processes and the physical construction. Adsonore is therefore directly related to the building in which it is housed – a new building for biological basic research.
