SAT, September 1, 5:00 – 7:00 pm
Meeting Point: Ars Electronica Center, Maindeck
Hauptplatz, Mobiles Ö1 Atelier

All Klangwolke letter designers who just can’t delay gratification any longer can gather on the Ars Electronica Center’s Maindeck on September 1st at 5 PM. Everyone’s invited! With voestalpine’s own marching band leading the way, a parade of people and letters will proceed across the Nibelungen Bridge to the Main Square.


SAT, September 1, 8:30 pm
The Cloud in the Web tells the story of our increasingly networked world from the first telephone to Facebook & Co. Hundreds of firefighters, industrial robots, water cannons, oarsmen and illuminated carrier pigeons are only a few of this play’s protagonists. Making their international debut will be a swarm of Klangwolke quadrocopters, four-rotor drone whirlybirds cruising above the audience.

Please note: Everybody who brings a self-made character with receiver should be within the green area to make sure that the character will light up and become part of the performance.
