Sonic Architecture

Natural reverberation space
2. 9. – 6. 9.

Reverb is one of the most used sound effects in recording. Since there is no real acoustic space in the iPod, the CD-player or radio, electronic reverberation
is to be heard in nearly all music or sound to create the impression of a real room the sound is in. The Sound Space, the high rack warehouse tobacco factory Linz, has the unique quality of a natural (architectural) long reverb of up to twelve seconds. The Ars Electronica Festival will turn the room into a Sound-Space – „Factory“, dedicated to three different acoustic activities:

GREEN: „Ars automatique“
The room is a mixing center of the sounds of the festival. Different locations of the tobacco factory are equipped with microphones and loudspeakers. Like a reverb room in the classic sound studio situation, the sounds are sent back and forth in and out the hochregallager. A sonic real time portrait of the Festival Ars Electronica 2010.

ORANGE: „Sound check“
Workshops, music sessions, guided „audio tours“ turn the Sound Space into an experimental sound laboratory. Every sound is important, the perception of sounds influenced by reverb is no longer a myth of studio technology but an experience open to every interested ear.

RED: „Concert space“
Concerts by sound artists and musicians known for their spatial sensitivity, their ability to listen and to work with the acoustic environment, the space they are in. Electronic music, acoustical music, real-time sound art, jazz, new music and architectural sound space: not a matter of genres, but of the knowledge about sound and space that is the common quality of all the artists involved. Featuring: AGF aka Antye Greie, Franz Hautzinger, Rupert Huber, Sam Auinger, Didi Bruckmayr, Marco Palewicz, Drumski4 and more.

The slamming of a door is the signal for the end of one phase and the beginning of a new one.

Concept: Rupert Huber, Marco Palewicz, Gerfried Stocker, Bianca Petscher

A show object, a fascinating sound sculpture! Through its fascinating and hypnotic dance, Cycloïd-E delineates the space of sound orbits and creates a unique kinetic and polyphonic work. This installation runs during the ORANGE period of the Sound Space.
