Various auditory characteristics of the Lentos Art Museum served as Various auditory characteristics of the Lentos Art Museum in Linz serve 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. They were instructed to adjust their tempo in response to each room’s particular reverberation time. These performances were recorded and used for a composition that peaks in one synchronised drum stroke, which links the four selected rooms for a brief moment. Arranged as a 4-channel installation at the Lentos Art Museum. Additionally, the score of the piece was presented as a graphical illustration.

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.
