At the Ars Electronica Center for the Bruckner Year 2024

At the Ars Electronica Center in Linz/Austria, our headphone-based 3D sound system usomo is the technology used to transmit the music by the Austrian composer Anton Bruckner. 

On the occasion of the Bruckner Year 2024, the Ars Electronica Center developed two projects on the composer, one of which, “Being Anton“, is an immersive soundscape transporting the visitors to his time, the 19th century. Aside from his symphonies and organ music, complete with church acoustics and the operating sounds of the instrument, we hear his personal journal entries and excerpts from newspapers, sounds of horse carriages and the rain falling on the streets, all weaving an illustrative tapestry of sound.
