Viennacontemporary insights - part II:
Public space sound architects 'Tonspur'
Art fair 'viennacontemporary' (22 - 25 Sept) - Part I: Press talk viennacontemporary at Marx Halle
Yesterday at the light-flooded entrance hall of Marx Halle, Fashionoffice had the chance to talk with Tonspur Artistic Director Georg Weckwerth (image left) and Sound Architect Peter Szely.
Even the ones who aren't sound-art insiders know the work of Tonspur here in Vienna. Since 2003, Tonspur collaborates with MQ - Museumsquartier. At a passage of MQ, sounds installed by Tonspur transform an around ten meter long public road through a passage into an acoustic art space. The sound works are changing from time to time. Currently, the ca. 20 minutes audio play by Paul Plamper 'Future Dealers' is looping (listen at tonspur.at) at MQ. Tonspur have already engineered compositions by artists like Peter Weibel or Franz Graf for the stage or exhibition spaces. At the entrance hall of viennacontemporary at Marx Halle, Tonspur plays a selection of the sound architects' 'T_collection' which consists of over 70 masterpieces of sounds. Peter Weibel and Franz Graf for example can be listened tomorrow on 23 September.
