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.

Music for a special landscape—for the riverside park between the Danube and the Brucknerhaus—is the Klangpark’s leitmotif. Imagine you’re standing on London’s “Times Square” by the Thames and listening to the famous chiming of Big Ben.
