II. E# – from a glacial tune

the resonance frequencies of a crevasse are made audible, following Alvin Lucier’s concept of his famous piece I am sitiing in a room. Therefore, we set up a powerful speaker and several microphones directly inside a crevasse in 3200 Meters height in the Alps of Stubai, Austria. We made the glacier resonate and drone in it’s inside…

Dramaturgically the piece goes beyond a sound-phenomenological concept, it is a medial transformation. A multichannel composition (not an installation) for sound and video/light, which’s score is based on the true story of a 72 year old mountaineer who fell into such a crevasse and was rescued after sitting on one spot in complete darkness for six days and nights.
