The mountain panorama at Offensee as an imposing vocal line of slowly rotating choirs.

For the four-part project Salzkammer(sc)hall, the Salzkammergut region becomes the starting point, the material, the content and the stage, all at the same time, geographically as well as culturally. DER GESUNGENE HORIZONT, or THE SONG HORIZON takes Mahler’s claim to have “composed the mountains away” literally, much like Hans Gielge’s theory that the melody lines of yodels trace mountain panoramas. The line of the horizon on Offensee lake will become notation and thus the sounding line that will be “sung” together. Slowly the voices will follow the rising and falling crests, fall over the peak and edges or remain stable on the horizontal ridges.
