Sound Garden — Arvild J. Baud
This summer, the pavilion of the Fondation Beyeler park will once again resonate to the pulsating beats and melodies of our “Sound Garden.” Every Wednesday, visitors savoring the balmy evening air over a cool drink will get to enjoy the music of a line-up both regional and national, ranging from jazz and canzoni to disco and Hawaiian melodies. What better way to while away those precious mid-week hours than with the varied program of this year’s “Sound Garden” in the relaxed atmosphere of the museum’s park?
On this evening, Arvild J. Baud will be gracing the pavilion. His works are not just tracks, but rather multimedia experiences combining performance, film, and visual sound art. The ambient resonances of the soothing soundscape that he has created for the “Sound Garden” will acoustically model the museum’s park, enabling listeners to immerse themselves as much in the warm summer evening as in his many-layered sound worlds. Baud defines himself as a cross-disciplinary artist who is active in sound, composition, performance, theater, video art, and singing. He first came to the public’s attention with his Zürich-based disco-punk band Waldorf, which performed at clubs and festivals in Europe and the United States, including at “Sónar” in Barcelona and the “Electroclash Festival” in New York.
This event is free.
