Composition by Pia Palme/contrabass recorder and Electric Indigo/ computer for musikprotokoll 2014, Let's merry-go-round. Video by Pia Palme, live at ECAS carousel in Graz, Austria.
A vintage 'Ringelspiel' was set up at Karmeliterplatz, in the center of the city, and free rides offered to the public, accompanied with 10 pieces of commissioned electronic music for 4-channel PA by international composers. The moving audience create their own surround mix, and the overall ambient sound world adds further aural texture.
Lots of fun for people of all ages. With permission from the kind technician, I could record an inside view here. Imagine, how close to the loudspeakers he worked, all day long.
