„This version by Backes, Illing, and Schramm is not a performance, per se — it does not strictly abide to Lucier’s original. They have ingeniously adapted his work to exist as a constant presence — their reinterpretation, thus, shifts “Music on a Long Thin Wire” to a sculptural mode from a concert mode.“ Quote by disquiet.com
„Vertical Wire Music“ is a reinterpretation of Alvin Luciers „Music On A Long Thin Wire“ by Martin Backes, Heidrun Schramm and Christoph Illing. It`s a permanent installation! Which means you can visit this exhibition at anytime.
