Sound Islands Schlosspark GroƟharthau

Together with the municipality of GroƟharthau, we will implement Klanginseln Schlosspark GroƟharthau, a one-week summer residence with a public event in Schlosspark GroƟharthau. With the participation of sound artists and musicians from the region, cross-generational participation offers as well as an exhibition and mediation programme will be implemented in GroƟharthau and Wachau in the summer of 2023. We are interested in the significance of sound for our coming together and the search for practices to raise awareness of ecological sound generation.

1 _ Off-Grid Programme GroƟharthau is a nine-day residency for artists and experts that takes up the site-specific situation (cultural landscape of Schlosspark GroƟharthau) in order to sensitise people to the ecological design of self-made sound instruments by means of artistic research and approaches of mutual knowledge transfer.

2 _ Workshop offerings in the GroƟharthau Castle Park Participatory outdoor workshop offerings will take place in the GroƟharthau Castle Park from 11 August, starting at 3 p.m. each day, which are dedicated to cross-generational participation in the joint construction of instruments and sound sculptures, spatial sound recordings and sound experiments.
