2012/07/02 — {wiegenlied} : Murau - concert installation at regionale XII

On 6 and 7 July, 2012 a fourth acoustic space will be created on the roof top of the tannery.

As the original wares of the tannery were once hung out to dry here, all four sides of the roof truss have openings which expose the space to the city. Within this acoustic zone, which is washed over by, or, almost imbued with, the sounds of the city, Gerriet K. Sharma creates an additional acoustic environment: the acoustic installation titled Lullaby. This installation was first composed between 2009 and 2010 for the impressive foyer of the Landesvertretung of German state of North Rhine-Westphalia in Berlin. To achieve this, the sound artist travelled for a year capturing sounds throughout his home state, and then went on to create new sound fragments, rhythmic structures and timbres for this installation. At each of the special events, the public will experience the interplay between the sound installation Lullaby and the ambient sounds of the Murau township.
