The sound installation Composition #7 focuses on a special and delicate performance practice that made use of Anton Bruckner‘s works in the form of „Dunkelkonzerte“ during the Nazi era. The Wiener Konzerthaus was completely darkened and listening to Bruckner was advertised as a pseudo-religious, transcendental experience in the context of the National Socialist blood and soil ideology.

Composition #7 points to this acousmatic concert practice to present Bruckner‘s Seventh Symphony in the form of a special sound/space setting that refers to LaMonte Young‘s drone music happenings. This new interpretation presents Bruckner‘s music in complete contradiction to the „Dunkelkonzerte“ of the 1940s.

„I keep pressing record, but the battery symbol is flashing and the blinking red light goes out. While I record, the acoustic is transformed to electric energy and …out of battery.“  

An installation that generates sound and plays with points in time, time spans and duration. It uses electricity as a performer and understands the physicality of infrastructure as a colorful material. Exploring the sites and displacement of energy, electrical or mechanical. Making it visible and audible. Colorful segments of cables, children´s toys and discarded plugs.

The immaterial illusion of modernity leaves us with many overlooked places, materials and noises. To perceive these hidden backgrounds of human lives, one must be aware of the planetary network and infrastructure that feeds them. The buzz of server landscapes, the hum of air conditioners as well as the piercing sounds of scrap presses dealing with the afterlife of our technological objects.

Anna Lerchbaumer is a sound and video artist, she reflects in her works on the relationships between technology, humans and nature. The sculptural aspect plays an important role in her work. She works with found objects and seemingly discarded technologies that are brought to life in the process of making. Anna Lerchbaumer combines obsolescence, raw material things spatially as well as acoustically to create humorous and critical connections.

Solo exhibitions, exhibition participations and performances have been shown at Krinzinger Projects, Zentrale and Mz Baltazare, as well as abroad in China, India and Japan. The artistic, philosophical long-term project together with Kilian Jörg Toxic Temple has been published in book form in 2022 by Edition Angewandte / de Gruyter.
