About the event

Opening: Friday, 24 January 2020, 18:00

Sound artist Patrick Muller from Luxembourg is devoting an exhibition called Sitting for decades to Alvin Lucier on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the latter’s composition I am sitting in a room. Muller views the show as a way of approaching the poetry of Lucier’s work experimentally: as if in a search for clues, he quotes principles, plays variations on ideas, and uses what exists to create something new. Muller thus conjoins here his own working methods, which often build on interactivity and feedback systems, with the goal of emulating Lucier’s consistent focus.
This focus, along with the recursive process that plays such a prominent part in I am sitting in a room, guide visitors through the exhibition as connecting threads, turning up in the themes of sound installations, soundwalks, lectures, workshops and performances. In addition to Patrick Muller’s own installations, other artists have been invited to provide insights into their working worlds, to perform Lucier’s compositions, and to join visitors in opening up the city of Luxembourg as a sounding board and the Casino Luxembourg as an acoustic Black Box.
