An underground car park in a suburban settlement in Linz is the setting for the sound intervention sight-seeing. In a first step, the space was recorded and acoustically analysed to determine its predominant frequencies. Based on these findings, the artist group FAXEN created a sound performance that generates subtle interferences between the natural soundscape and the composition. A dystopian sound intervention that confronts the listener with the ubiquity of poorly designed acoustic spaces. “sight-seeing” was commissioned by the art festival “festival of regions” in Linz/Austria.
