Ikarus A 4 is a sound installation for a long hallway with empty rooms on the 4th floor of the Allianz building at Joachimstaler Platz.
I've repeatedly thought about the question of how air sounds, and looked for places where air can be heard. And so I began to fly. It's very beautiful up there, but one must pay attention to the sun, otherwise you lose your orientation. Did Icarus have life insurance and is it possible to fly on paper? Or only to build paper planes?
The central listening-place, the focus of the installation, is the entry room. There the first of four identical loudspeakers can be found. The other three are distributed along the entire length of the corridor. Sound is moved between the loudspeakers, which gives a sense of distance, and makes the hallway audible as space.
Ikarus A4 is a soundscape of the installation site itself. The composition consists of four groups of sounds: »skin«, »stuffing«, »stone« and »deep tones«. They are based on a matrix that has been derived from the 4th storey's floor plan. All compositional parameters, such as the length of tones, density of material, sequence of loudspeakers, and spatial sound position, are arrived at on the basis of this matrix.
Only the front rooms of the floor are accessible to visitors to the installation Ikarus A4. The adjacent soundspace will not be accessible, just as you don't stick your head in the double bass at an orchestra concert.
