Choreophonic Reflections of a Glass Quadrant. A Sound Mobile in the Courtyard of the JKU Linz Library.

The architecturally constructed echo reflection space of the library’s inner courtyard becomes an acoustically transformed dreamspace for flying sound flags in a glass quadrant. Shadowy, recognizable reverberations from Bruckner’s 9th and Lux Eterna are reanimated by a virtual sound mobile into a fatamorgana of timespace.
