During the second part of the project Scripted Spaces: The Chase and The Labyrinth, the result of a workshop from the haus.0 series will be presented: the audio installation The Global L.A. Pavilion.
Within the workshop, numerous Hollywood movies that had been dubbed from English into German were analyzed. All movies contained references to the city Los Angeles. From these movies, the workshop group abstracted short sequences of about 20 seconds length, so-called “memory music”. Those sound pieces were arranged and transferred from one part of the world into another, making obvious that the global notion of L.A. is way more European than any myths and stories suggest.
The Global L.A. Pavilion was produced in collaboration with Otto Kränzler, who is director auf the audio studios and co-founder of Künstlerhaus. On occasion of the workshop, Kränzler installed new sampling devices inside the haus.0 spaces. Kränzler worked as sound engineer for Stockhausen at WDR Radio. His most recent works are associated with contemporary opera.
