This autumn's Klangfest was held from 28 to 30 October and is dedicated to "The Sound of Europe". It is part of the project entitled "ECHOES FROM INVISIBLE LANDSCAPES“.
Enterprise Z's first contribution to this initiative is the project "The Sound of Europe" at Klanghaus Untergreith, where sounds, tones and noise were collected on a trip across Europe and compiled to form a sound map of the continent. These recordings made in cities including, among others, London, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Bucharest, Warsaw, St. Petersburg, Lisbon and Brussels reflect the cultural and social diversity of Europe. One central aim of this collection of sounds was to locate artistic and cultural activities that are largely undiscovered and thus "invisible".
"The Sound of Europe" is a sound installation that will be presented at the Sound Gallery of Klanghaus on the three festival days. Artists and creatives who entered into resonance on these trips will present their work. The Klanghaus lends itself as the resonating body that amplifies the echoes generated by the agents of cultural reflection and making them heard across geographic regional borders.
