Visualisierte Linzer Klangwolke FLUT


Sat 5.9.

3:00 PM Hauptplatz – Die Prophezeiung

9:00 PM Donaupark Linz – Die Arche

Fabulous creatures traverse the city and transform it into a biotope full of wonders—all of them betokening impending catastrophe and rescue.
Linz is being flooded in 2009. The Klangwolke (Cloud of Sound) follows the river all the way back to humankind’s most ancient narratives. Watery deluges, floods of information, waves of human beings. During the hours leading up to the climax, the sights and sounds of warning are unmistakable. Would it behoove Linz, the city astride the Danube, to cleanse itself? Serious and absurd prophesies collide head on. Over the course of the day, wondrous creatures stream through the cityscape; animals and mythical beings pull the public in their wake. At nightfall, the scenery in front of the Brucknerhaus will be the site of a drama at the nexus of demise and salvation.

Promises in Sound and Vision

There are sounds and noises all over the museum, as artists today take an engagement with the sound of this world for granted. The former predominance of the visual has meanwhile been replaced by a multifaceted interplay of image and sound. See this Sound documents this development from the perspective of visual art and refers to the respective contemporary discussions and promises.

We 2.9. – Thu 3.9. 2009

Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz, Ernst-Koref-Promenade 1, 4020 Linz

Organizer: Ludwig Boltzmann Institute Media.Art.Research
Concept: Dieter Daniels & Sandra Naumann

A cooperation between the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute Media.Art.Research. and the Lentos Art Museum Linz with Linz 2009 European Capital of Culture

See this Sound – Sound-Image Relations in Art, Media and Perception

The project SEE THIS SOUND explores the past and present of the link between image and sound in art, media and perception. The starting point is the fact that our world of experience today is marked by an omnipresence of audiovisual products and structures, in which the cultural production of image and sound is closely intertwined artistically, and in terms of media technology and market strategy. SEE THIS SOUND reacts to this by presenting and discussing different realizations of contemporary art and art studies. The current fields of reference range here from pop culture to the theory of perception and media technology.

80+1 Basecamp, Hauptplatz

80+1 idea & concept: Ars Electronica Linz, voestalpine AG, Linz09
Ein Projekt für Linz 2009 Kulturhauptstadt Europas

Inspired by Jules Verne’s world-famous classic, “80+1” takes you along on a virtual ‘round-the world journey via satellite hook-up and fiber optic cable. The itinerary includes 20 destinations, places where the future is being invented, mastered or, perhaps, thwarted. Thus, 20 issues of key importance to our future are up for discussion; the contributions to it take artistic, scientific and journalistic approaches to these issues. But beyond this wideranging confrontation with global themes, “80+1” will also delve into our own personal takes on and relations to the future, our hopes and our fears.

A production by Blast Theory, coproduced by the Mixed Reality Lab. Presented by Linz09 in cooperation with Ars Electronica. Funded by the British Council Austria.

“Rider Spoke” is a work for cyclists combining theatre with game play and state of the art technology. It invites the audience to cycle through the streets of the city, equipped with a handheld computer. Using wi-fi technology, they search for a hiding place and record a short message there. And then they search for the hiding places of others. The audience can take part either on their own bike or borrow one supplied by Blast Theory.

“Rider Spoke” continues Blast Theory’s fascination with how games and new communication technologies are creating new social spaces. It poses further questions about where theatre may be sited and what form it may take. It invites the public to be co-authors of the piece and a visible manifestation of it as they cycle through the city. It locates the venue precisely in its local context and invites the audience to explore that context for its emotional and intellectual resonances.
