Kongressbad Ottakring, Julius-Meinl-Gasse 7A, 1160 Vienna
This summer czirp czirp is inviting pool guests and music audiences to Kongressbad Vienna (Ottakring) for an afternoon of swimming, music and sound.
In continuation of its history as social and cultural meeting point, as well as radio station “Radiokoje” into the 1950s, we seek to update and revive its significance. The pool and its surroundings will become a platform for musicians, performers and sound artists to present and engage with this unusual setting. Especially modern music and twentieth century’s electronic avantgardes explored waters in all aggregates and challenged musics by experimenting with it: melting, distorting, dissolving and undulating of forms. This is where we continue, and expand the sonic experience by the pool.
In cooperation with IGNM – International Association for New Music and MA44 – Städtische Bäder Wiens.
Supported by the City Council Vienna MA7 Musics as well as the generous support of The Head of District Franz Prokop (Ottakring).
