Collaboration with Elevate festival on a new artistic production by Andreas Trobollowitsch

New project cycle for Re-Imagine Europe: New Perspectives for Action has officially started on February 1st of 2023. One of the first project activities relates to the renowned Elevate festival in Graz. During the festival, new artwork "hybrid #1 - ⥀12" by Andreasa Trobollowitsch comissioned and produced by Elevate festival in collaboration with KONTEJNER and Universalmuseum Joanneum – Institut für Kunst im öffentlichen Raum Steiermark will be presented.

One focus of Elevate Arts 2023 is the work of the Vienna-based artist and composer Andreas Trobollowitsch. He is represented at the festival with three installations. Trobollowitsch's artistic approach is conceptual and site-specific, often also playful and experimental. His compositions and sound installations are often based on self-developed or prepared musical instruments, modified everyday objects or changing aggregate states. Interested in the dichotomy of the intellectual and the physical, he incorporates visual aspects, spatialities as well as movement and uses a playful practice that focuses on experimentation and timbre.

"hybrid #1 - ⥀12" by Andreas Trobollowitsch is a new artwork comissioned and produced through Re-Imagine Europe: New Perspectives for Action project by Elevate festival in collaboration with KONTEJNER. It is a sound installation consisting of six self-built mechanical record players, flutes and balloons by the Viennese artist Andreas Trobollowitsch. While the record players rotate at different speeds, the flutes attached to them are made to sound by the air flowing out of the balloons. The sound is modulated by the successively decreasing air pressure. Once the air has escaped from the balloons, the flutes also fall silent and only the sound of the empty rotating balloons can be heard.
