On August 29th KONTRAKLANG brings contemporary music to public space. The event features a new work by Antje Vowinckel for four cars with subwoofers. They ride in blasting the audience with pop music from open windows, then arrive in a quartet formation.
Four musicians sit in the automobiles manipulating, filtering, and otherwise alienating the prerecorded music. A layered bass texture emerges. Higher frequencies in the form of car sounds such as horns or blinkers creep in — the pop quartet becomes an installational sound quartet. An everyday image of street traffic thus becomes material for a sound art performance.
