Clouds and Waves

Clouds and Waves is a sound sculpture functioning as a temporary installation in space and imagination.

The sculpture is formed inside the heads of the audience and interprets through the freedom of abstraction. As in life, a continuum is being created: a gentle beginning, a loud rearing up and a fainting dying away – an endless process mirroring life, birth, drama and death through music.

The premiere took place in the framework of the festival “KlangZeit : Raum 2018” at the LWL – Museum für Kunst und Kultur Münster (Westphalian State Museum of Art and Cultural History) in Muenster, Germany.
