Quadraphonic sound installation (2006)

With Reinstallation, Bernhard Gal closes a circle of publications which were all dealing with sound materials from various sound installations and intermedia art projects of recent years. The installation consists exclusively of sound fragments from previous sound installations, which Gal dissociated from their original contexts and combined into a 74 minutes-long electroacoustic compositon. In June 2005, the German publishing house Kehrer Verlag Heidelberg published the catalogue book 'Installations', documenting Gal’s intermedia installations from 1999 to 2004. For the accompanying audio CD, sound excerpts from Gal's installations were edited and recombined into a continuous composition which later on was published as an independent audio CD on Gromoga Records. Now Gal in turn takes this composition as a basis for a new work. Reinstallation consists entirely of fragments from the audio cd which are recombined, layered and spatially arranged into a quadrophonic sound installation.
