Quebrada Escondida Rubén D'Hers

In his work Quebrada Escondida the Berlin-based Venezuelan guitarist and sound artist Rubén D’Hers presents 15 string instruments, which are situated on the floor of the Kapitelsaal. A cloud of cables hangs from the ceiling, drooping down almost to the strings of the instruments. On the end of the cables are direct current motors that swing freely over the instruments and rotate at different speeds. A piece of fabric attached to the motors strokes the strings. This generates a constantly changing soundscape. Depending of the physical state of the instruments and the temperature, the structure of the ambience varies slightly throughout the day.

Open on festival days of the Easter Festival Imago Dei and the donaufestival until the end of the concert evening in Klangraum Krems Minorite Church.

TUES – SUN (or on holidays)
11:00 AM – 5:00 PM
