about

"Wie kann jemand so exakt das Chaos in uns allen fassen?! Was dagegen, wenn ich dieses Meisterwerk der Tonkunst zwischen SPK ("Leichenschrei") und Raison D'Etre ("The Empty Hollow Unfolds") platziere? Bin schwer beeindruckt!"
-- Stephan Wolf

This recording is the document of an installation by Hans Castrup, "Das 7. Siegel“ (The 7th Seal). It referred to "The Seven Trombone Angels" - a print from Albrecht Dürer´s woodcut cycle “The Apocalypse“ from the year 1498 .

The installation was displayed from July - September 2017 at the exhibition "Dürer und Ich – ein Künstlertreffen" at the Museumsquartier Osnabrück.

"Das 7. Siegel" was a 3-channel sound installation which comprised three paintings on KAPA lightweight foam panels with exciter speakers on the reverse, two CD-players, two amplifiers and one subwoofer.
The size of the paintings is 300x140 cm each, acrylic/oil mixture; with the exciters they functioned as loudspeakers.

The music, an electro-acoustic sound collage, came from two CDs of different lengths – one 24:00 and one 26:00 minutes, which were played in continuous non-synchronized loops by two CD players.
The CD players were restarted anew every day during the exhibition. This resulted in a more or less unique interplay of the two loops daily.

This recording offers a mix of the two loops, approximately one and a half passes in length, similar to the original installation.
