Museum Night 2015

Sitterwerk unplugged

September 05, 2015 Event date: 18.00

Under the motto «Museum Night Sounds» this year’s St.Gallen Museum Night takes place on Saturday, September 5th. The Sitterwerk with the Kunstgiesserei and the Photo Lab will take part as venues and has invited the two musicians Anthea Caddy and Asi Föcker to create musical works for the occasion. The two musicians live in Berlin, Australia and in Switzerland, and have often collaborated on projects over the years. The musicians will arrive at Sitterwerk a few days before the Museum Night in order to create various sound experiments specifically for the space, titled «Sitterwerk unplugged»: Acoustic experiments will be created in the rooms, outdoor spaces, gaps and voids of the Kunstgiesserei and Sitterwerk. Through the interplay of closeness and distance, vibration and acoustic amplifications various sound installations will take place throughout the evening.
