The NOVA vocal ensemble recorded these pieces at the ORF studio, augmenting them with music from the 13th and14th centuries. These recordings constitute the sound material for the installation.

After the first installation - the "Himmelsleiter" (Stairways to heaven) started in Linz at Höhenrausch - we begin to work now on the second installation of the project - the "Llullophon". Watch our short video from the recording sessions of the Vokalensemble NOVA in the ORF Funkhaus Wien.
Angels are generally regarded as ambivalent "in-between beings" that do not really belong to any world, neither the world of ghosts and gods, nor the world of living beings. They are charged with different meanings depending on the cultural sphere - they appear as protectors as well as guards and soldiers, cosmic craftsmen and civil servants of heaven, as journey companions and messengers.
