Acoustically as well, the 2012 voestalpine Klangwolke is a joint effort. Ars Electronica cordially invites you to produce your own personal soundcloudminiature and to upload it to ars.electronica.art/klangwolke. There are all sorts of creative possibilities: melodies, the noise of everyday life, or just interesting sounds you happen to hear—at home in your garden or anywhere around town. The only proviso: these acoustic events can’t be more than a minute long. You can use any tool you’ve got: from a smartphone to a home studio. Of course, the ideally equipped workspace in which to record and produce your soundcloudminiature is the Ars Electronica Center’s new SoundLab.

On Sunday, September 2nd, all submitted soundcloudminiatures will suffuse downtown Linz via the Klangwolke’s 250,000-watt sound system.
