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. As THE LANDSCAPE ORGAN, brass musicians transform themselves in a valley basin and a gravel quarry into a polyphonous organ that can emit powerful sounds just as much as it can dryly popping sounds and tender clouds of trills or shining major chords. The sounds overlayer and displace each other and return as echoes. The changing audience immerses itself into the dynamic depths of the sounds and the silences. Each audience member will hear something different.
