During the coronavirus pandemic, many art projects were relocated from physical spaces to the internet in order to remain present in the public consciousness. tingles & clicks /graz goes in the opposite direction: conceived in 2020 as an online work, the project is being realized in 2021 as an interactive installation at the MUMUTH in Graz. Here, using commissioned works in which outstanding musicians create sound environments, it places lost corporeality at its center.
Lying on wheel boards, visitors move through 4 × 4-meter fields while being detected by a tracking system. In interaction with virtual sound objects, intimate one-person listening experiences take place. The project is a continuation of our multi-year series music for bodies in motion, in which the environment and the position of the listener are the given parameters of hearing.
