Seven speakers form a three-dimensional audio environment within a counterpoint of three video screens. Such is the setting of the videophonic soundscape EUROPEALIS – MEETING POINT.

The co-composition leads you into an acoustic environment of european languages, live-generated electronic and acoustic sounds – surrounded by videosequences of daily encounters between people in various public spaces. The soundscape creates a multilayered field of possible comments on the cultural identities of the protagonists­ while the video-installation offers several surfaces to project these comments.

Europealis -­ Meeting Point is the result of co-composition of the artists involved. It presents a sound-image of communicational processes, covering aspects as individual freedom, cultural identity, selfrestriction and the creation of a common structure.

The flow of sound and video is tuned to a mathematic transformation of the European degrees of latitude projected on a timeline. These timeintervals form the framework of the whole setting. The individual works of the artists integrate into the chosen timestructure and become subordinate to the crossover collaboration, developing a non-linear three-dimensional environment.

The European Gallery of Tones was founded in 1998 by Stevko Busch. As a pool of autonomous artists it works on the realisation of soundart-exhibitions
and concerts of contemporary music.
