    This atmospheric sound collage can be interpreted as a longitudinal section through the festival’s history. Seventy excerpts representing its different eras and style epochs. The aura is the message: messages from the inventory of our collective (un)consciousness. The sound material is considered, in highlights and snapshots, turned around, flipped over, hard-cut, and released in collision montages. A work in progress. A meditation. A firework.

    Der Klang des Festes is one of four works commissioned on the 70-year history of the Wiener Festwochen, for which the festival opened up its archives for research purposes. Inspired by a piece of Festwochen history, local artists are to present one sketch for the stage each, on four consecutive evenings. Artistic explorations of history will be created using various resources such as music, language, stage design, and performance.

    The performance is part of MITTEN am Abend, a four-day series that combines lectures, performances and music into a highly diverse programme.
