Telefonia–1291–1991–2021, Andres Bosshard

Telefonia–1291–1991–2021 (2020) is a web platform with comprehensive access to the original material of a three-day telematic performance installation that began simultaneously at three locations on 30 May 1991. Just as the internet was emerging, the Swiss sound artist Andres Bosshard – in conjunction with fellow musicians – developed the idea of a three-dimensional overlapping sound space, where an interaction between soundscapes from three distant places could open up a new dimension of perception of the fundamental spatiality and contextuality of sound.
