BERNHARD LEITNER - KOPFRÄUME/HEADSCAPES

BERNHARD LEITNER (1938-)


HEADSCAPES is a pictorial and plastic piece by Bernhard Leitner, born in 1938 in Austria, recorded on an audio CD. The sixteen \"space-pieces\" are not depictions of exterior spaces; on the contrary, they have been created and designed for the interior space of the mind. These acoustic headscapes can only be experienced using headphones. The head is to function as a sound space, as a place where space is shaped by the movements of sound lines and sound matter. The sounds move, wind, and bend their way through the brain as if it were immaterial. The brain cannot hear itself. The acoustic-geometrical \"time spaces in the head\" range from thirty-four seconds to three minutes in length. The scale of the spaces is not determined: narrow, dense, and boundless. The head-space appears as an open, ball-like vessel or a landscape: the eye, the hearing glance, is turned inward. Acoustic thinking. Acoustic seeing.
