Soundinstallation by TAMTAM
Kunstpavillion / Innsbruck (A) 26.06. – 15.10.2003
Farben / Colours is a sound installation in public space.
It creates a poetic soundscape which plays with how visitors experience time and space.
Space accelerates and decelerates, lightens and darkens.
With the aid of sensors, visitors’ movements become the parameter for the installation’s activity.
The starting point is public space with its sounds and noises in its architectural, social, functional and rhythmic structures.
The musical language of the composition evolves out of these colours (characteristics), as do the sound material and
compositional strategy which continually re-engage in dialogue with the acoustic events at the site. Sound material is
recorded here while pre-produced segments are adjusted to it. The composition comes together within this concrete space.
