Bipperlisi (2008)



Bipperlisi is a sound-installation inside a public train connecting Solothurn with Langenthal in Switzerland.

For this commission by the Kuratorium Solothurn we synchronized music specially composed for this occasion to the scenery rushing past outside the windows of the train using a GPS-like positioning device present in the train. Using the positioning device we could use the trains position much like the position of a needle on a record to control the playback of the music by the trains position and speed.

Bipperlisi was running from July to end of August 2008.

“July 19th in the year 6870”
