idea was to use a large outdoor area with an interesting environment
as a space for experiencing music and sounds. To make every moment a
unique experience the composition constantly developed and recomposed
itself by means of a specially made computer application.
"Laholms Ljudpark" was created using a enormous surroundsystem comprised of eight loudspeakers, in the shape of large megaphones, set at 100 to 400 meter intervals from each other along the river bed at a dam outside Laholm in Sweden. More than 2,500 meters of cable were used for connecting the loudspeakers to the control center.
Two large billboards were placed near the motorway, E6, as advertising signs/highway-art for "Laholms Ljudpark". Considering the millions of motorists that traverse that stretch of road during that time of year, the possibilities for reaching and attracting a large audience were very good.
"Laholms Ljudpark" was open from the 14th of June to the 13th of September 1998.
