Take Me Round Again
Take Me Round Again is a sound installation Lukas Moritz Wegscheider
made in autumn of 2019 at the Talstation in Innsbruck.
The Installation is placed in a room with a big window.
It consists of four objects: a sculpture with cassette tapeloops,
a turntable with a manipulated vinyl record, a normal cassette player
and a reel to reel tape machine with a very long tapeloop
that moves throw the whole room.
The installation room is closed for the audience but the sound
that is produced by the objects in the enclosed space is transmitted via radio waves,
so it can be listened with a radio, a smartphone or with the Weltenempfänger
(a small radio for shortwave radio frequencies) which is installed outside the room.

The subtle impression presented in the room reminds of what might have been.
Sound material is layered in repetition and standing surfaces suggest alleged standstill.
The alienation of the sounds expands the scope of possibilities and the generated spatial-atmospheric impressions become a memory of their origin.
By viewing the enclosed space, impressions are made accessible to the public.
The sound can be heard via the world receiver installed on the shop window, if the radio frequency is set correctly.
Thus, the abstracted space integrates into the concrete environment and completes the impression.
Sacred is a sound installation Lukas Moritz Wegscheider made in the summer of 2018 at the Postgarage in Graz. The installation is based on a sculpture, which consists of basically three parts. The upper part holds the technical aspects of the sound sculpture. Five walkmans are mounted on the top, from which five long tapeloops in different lenghts hang down and generate the sound. The middle part consists of speaker in a similar shape of a hexaeder with one loudspeaker on each of the six faces. And on the bottom part a golden hand is mounted. The installation was sponsored by the Bundesministerium für Bildung, Wissenschaft und Forschung. Thanks to Winfried Ritsch and the IEM Kunstuni Graz.
The Videoteam “Schubidu Quartett“ made a short documentary about the Installation which can be seen in video below.
In the summer of 2016 Lukas Moritz Wegscheider created a custom made Instrument,
the Droneophone. The Instrument is a electro-acoustical string instrument with three strings,
a bar to play different tunings and a sustainer. With the sustainer it is possible to hold tones infinitely long
and because of physical interference created by the movement of the strings,
the instruments playes pulsating waves of drones.
