The video "OszillEntreNous" documents the artistic interventions pursued by the artist in the “Golden Hall” of the Wiener Musikverein, a strongly codified place which, thanks to technical installations, is famous for its acoustics (“golden sound”). The 300 concertgoers and the pianist Paul Gulda, playing a digital Bösendorfer grand piano, listen to the concert directly at the ear via in-ear headphones. Yet the actual (concert) attraction—the instrument—is not audible in the video. Featured instead is the golden sound of ambient noise (coughing, the keystrokes of the pianist, etc.) that in other concert situations would be drowned out by the music. Therefore the video, as an autonomous piece, establishes a realm that allows everyone present in the concert hall to perform in symbiotic synchronicity, with the functional particles of communication between music and listener thus explored.
