Weber, Heinz: Parcour II 



Basic information



  • Program notes: 

    Parcour II
    Installation for 6 loudspeakers in a listening space
    The basic sound of „Parcour II“ are various acoustic situations of the „Christians-Church“ in Hamburg, Germany. Several sound-recordings inside the church are mixed with some other secret sounds which are hidden in some places.
    Thinking about music and sound you find some transcendental questions about beginning, duration, dimension and ending. I have been collecting endings. „Endings“ – that means the very last tone, the last chord of a music piece where there is no more context of rhythm and melodics – just the compacted substrate of the piece, detached from its body – just the pure sound.
    What appears behind an ending? The focus of the sound-installation „Parcour II (Enden)“ is on the moment when music stops duration and its endings transform into a simultaneity of a spacial sound-process.

  • Technical specs: 

    Technical rider
    For the release of the pre-mixed pure installation of „Parcour II“ is needed:
    a six-track sound system and 6 loudspeaker with stands which are to be set up in the installation space.
    The size of the space should be about 80 m² to 250 m²
    The piece itself exists as 6 separate wav sound files, one for each loudspeaker. The soundfiles must be synchronized and played simultaneously.
