The Chilean artist Sebastián Jatz Rawicz stands in the tradition of the American avant-garde in the footsteps of John Cage. His sound interventions, installations and concerts, however, develop their very own aura and are centered around the production of music and sound itself. His new sound installation »Harmonic Garden« , developed for the Meinblau project space, is inspired by a visit to the gardens of the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. While in these the water, fountains and ponds are considered to be symbols of abundance and the representation of paradise, Jatz Rawicz uses sounds, colors and light in »Harmonic Garden« to create a promenade for the senses and a place of contemplation.

The atmosphere of the place changes. Architectural elements integrated into the space massively change the perception of space. The incident daylight is reflected by these elements, so that shadows very slowly wander through the room. Between and along the walls there are tape loops of different lengths, from which breathing noises and the sounds of a harmonica can be heard. Similar to the light, the long cassette tapes and the sounds move slowly through the space.
