Hohlicht

sound installation

Applying the media of space, sculpture, sound and photography, the work investigates the idealistic, glorifying view on the Alpine idyll and its reflection in folk art. In cooperation with the Safran Jodelclub, natural yodels of different timbres were recorded. Their arrangement took place via eight discrete audio channels.

While the voices move from speaker to speaker and along the spatial drawing made of wool and electric fence, the composition developes as an organic audiovisual figure. The psychoacoustic dimension of the work induces sensory experiences familiar from the mountains such as echo, the physical sensation of height and expanse and the experience of aesthetic sublimity.
