John Grzinich's aeolian wind harp installation “Powerless Flight”
EKA New Media Professor John Grzinich will participate in the Hear Here festival in Leuven, Belgium. From April 23rd until June 7th a version of his “Powerless Flight” aeolian wind harp installation will be installed on the grounds of KADOC, a former monastery that now functions as a cultural heritage research centre.
Powerless Flight establishes a direct relationship to the local weather and climate conditions through its temporal harmonic tones. With this work, Grzinich aims to reorient our perception toward the other than human world, giving a signifying voice to the often unseen and unheard forces of nature.
HEAR HERE Festival takes the visitor on a trip through sound art in Leuven Belgium. Fourteen resounding artworks are spread out across ten heritage locations. Every installation engages in an acoustic dialogue with the architecture and surroundings.
Recent versions of Powerless Flight are currently on display at the Conservatório de Música Calouste Gulbenkian in Braga, Portugal and Copper Leg residency in Rae, Estonia.
