Konversation

Erwin Stache

2006


A group of seven and a row of five red chests pop up like plants in nature. They chat and interchange signs or sounds. A number of boxes use orchestral sounds that vary in pitch and timbre according to the distance visitors take from the cases. Other chests record voices or ambient sounds. Sheer coincidence creates a surprising ensemble for the visitors during the day.

Erwin Stache (DE) has studied physics and mathematics, and is a piano and organ player. His career as a musician, luthier and composer started in 1985. He mainly designs installations for particular public spaces.
