A scenic park high above the city of Linz, a tempting scenario for live performances, sound environments and superb Action Cooking by Gordon W’s Scharfness Institute. An evening in the park—enjoy the “chill in evening” of Ars Electronica 2004.
With: Sam Auinger (A), Bruce Odland (USA), Rupert Huber (A), AGF (D), Fuzzy Love (CDN), DJ Record Player Laura Kikauka (CDN)
The entire park surrounding the Franz-Joseph-Warte will be saturated with sound from more than 30 loudspeakers. Nature is staged and becomes part of the evening’s artistic concept. Candles and torches show visitors the way up; hammocks strung between the trees then invite them to relax and enjoy the sound in the park.
O+A take advantage of the special acoustics of the Franz-Joseph-Warte for their extraordinary sound installation “Vertical Game.” Live performers will include Austrian musician/composer Rupert Huber and AGF (D), winner of an Award of Distinction in the 2004 Prix Ars Electronica’s Digital Musics category. The band Fuzzy Love will be disposing of top-quality trash art. The culmination: DJing with Laura Kikauka. And to add some culinary spice to the tonal mix, Gordon W’s Scharfness Institute will be blending performance with cooking. An Evening in the Park—mobilize all your sensory capacities to pleasurably partake of the 2004 Ars Electronica’s “chill-in evening.”
Our free shuttle service will whisk you up to Freinberg: departure from Linz’s Main Square (Hauptplatz) at regular intervals beginning at 8 PM.
