Reheat: the Schnitzel, heimische Ware für Londoner Ohren
Every year now a strange kind of gathering takes place close to the very eastern border of Austria at a barn called the Kleylehof. Viennese artists of many backgrounds have taken over this barn and converted it into a multifunctional performance and studio space, complete with a homemade emergency slide and a swing garden hut. In August they celebrate the Reheat festival, that brings together local and international artists, performers and scientists who ride towards the hungarian border on home-made rocket propelled bicyles.
This years festival theme was 'electromagnetism' and therefore an ideal place to capture sounds for a radio show. The proceedings of the whole day included video installations, gps guided tours, lectures, many concerts and much more. The best way to represent this multitude was to send all recordings through the cut-up software called 'Schnitzel' written by one of the festivals co-organizers Dieb13.
It was a great festival, next year you should go there in person. Until then there is this show.
