ltd009 | alva noto. empty garden | compact disc

in 1999 carsten nicolai aka noto had the chance of presenting a personal exhibition at watari-um - japans largest private museum. Exclusively for this project he created a footpath that led to a garden close to the museum. when walking along the path using a shoulder-speaker system one could listen to a soundtrack especially arranged by nicolai. The speaker system (sony srs-gs 70) was originally designed for playstation 2. high-frequency sounds close to the periphery of the audible spectrum and the special speaker system resting on the shoulders allowed the listener to assimilate environmental sounds, to integrate them into the composition. the soundtrack designed as a high-frequency headphones-composition will strengthen the auditory sensibility of the listener.
