Public Possession: Sounds reacting to News
On 5/10 Public Possession use the exhibition space of „Olaf Nicolai. There Is No Place Before Arrival“ as a recording space. They will attempt to accompany Olaf Nicolais work with sound.
The mix of music, field recordings and text will be recorded live and can be listened to afterwards via the homepage of Kunsthalle Wien.
Public Possession was founded in 2012 by Valentino Betz and Marvin Schuhmann as an outlet to channel their various interests. The idea was to emphasize the relationship between music, text, graphic design and happenings. This process being a continuous stream, constantly evolving. The record label and shop (physical & online) were added in 2013. Since then both give platform to various artists from around the globe. The effort of Public Possession is driven by the fun of creation and an urge to combine data – to create news.
