Various auditory characteristics of the Lentos Art Museum served as the starting-point for a composition which focuses on reverberation and acoustic reflection. The artist collective FAXEN invited percussionists to perform within 4 different rooms of the museum, and to adjust their tempo in response to each room’s particular reverberation time. These live-performances were recorded to form a composition that peaks in a synchronised drum stroke, which links the four selected rooms for a brief moment. The composition is presented as a multi- channel setup and accompanied by a graphic score.

Die Akustik ausgewählter Räume des Kunstmuseum Lentos dient als Grundlage für eine Komposition welche den Nachhall in den Mittelpunkt der künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung rückt. In Reaktion auf die Nachhallzeit stimmen eingeladene MusikerInnen die Geschwindigkeit ihres Spiels ab. Die daraus resultierenden Aufnahmen werden zeitlich verdichtet und als Mehrkanalkomposition wiedergegeben.
