Music and visualizations are mainstays of the Festival program. An opening extravaganza on Thursday kicks off the five-day media art festival. On Friday, the site of the Big Concert Night when orchestral music and digital sounds intermingle with live electronics and visualizations. Linz’s spacious riverside Donaupark will once again be serving as an open-air stage—on Saturday, centerpiece of the Visualized Klangwolke (Cloud of Sound). A special highlight will be the AIxMusic Festival on Saturday at the abbey of St. Florian. Music Monday is a great opportunity for aficionados of digital music and sound art to enjoy up-close-and-personal encounters with the festival’s lineup of artists and musicians.
