Dear all, something wicked this way comes – since 03.08. you can find a specially recorded sample pack, filled with sounds of Linz, on – and you can still participate in this summer special! Send in your productions till 03.09., to be part of this listening session, within this year‘s SOUND CAMPUS!

Since 2020, Sound Campus is a format hosted by the University of Arts Linz for students and performers to exchange and share with a wider audience. A series of performances, open sessions, radio broadcasts, workshops and itinerant installations are taking place around Hauptplatz 6 during the Ars Electronica Festival.

Embracing a collective and non-hierarchical approach, this year’s Sound Campus emphasizes the fluidity of sound expression and music making. Through notions of performativity and improvisation, a multidimensional stage provides a caring frame for solidarity and creation.

The summer edition of "Sample As That" consisted of a set of field recordings from the city of Linz, released as an invitation for everyone to build a track regardless of genre, aesthetics or technique, during a month (3.10. – 3.09.).

In the context of Sound Campus, the results will be shared in a listening session and TV-Show via DORF-TV, in conversation with audience and participants, giving attention to each production and applause respectively, as usual! is a monthly session realized at @stwst_linz & live through @dorftv . For this format, the space and a sample are provided. Participants are invited to build a track with their own tools, within two hours. Everyone is welcome to craft and listen.

Host: Lukas Jakob Löcker / Eliot

„Sample As That – FAQ“

An art form with its beginnings dating back to the French avant-garde of the 1940s and connecting through its ancestral chart all kinds of music styles and aesthetics – from the BBC radiophonic workshops, Jamaican dub pioneers, hip hop originators and progressive psychedelic rock, to industrial and plunderphonics as well. Taking pre-existing media and reusing it in a genuine way to create something new – it’s as simple as that.

Being the little sister of Berlin’s infamous „Sample Science“ events at Café Wendel, it borrows the basic frameworks from ELIOT’s experiences within these sessions – being mostly the time frame and its social settings; namely mutual respect for all colleagues, levels of experiences, musical genres and overall aesthetics! And of course the aim to gather different creative people in a public but casual location to cherish the art of sampling and therefore making it visible. Basically, it’s a community event for doing music in a shared environment – it’s as simple as that.

Linz’ very own STWST is providing the basis for these gatherings – not only through shelter and by hosting the events, but also by being the pinpoint for our samples themselves. All samples we’ll draw from, will be connected to this location and thus to the very individuals who perform(ed) music throughout the years. Those musicians, DJs and acts of all sorts will be curating and picking samples for us to work with – it’s as simple as that.

Since we had to change the initial concept due to the pandemic, we had a rough time finding a proper way of listening to all contributions together, or having a conversation respectively! So we reached out to find shared expertise within Linz' creative media community and found ourselves pitching ideas with the DORF-TV crew, coming up with this new format of a tv-show – it’s as simple as that.
