Urban Soundscapes - Wiener Festwochen

Meidlinger Markt, 1120 Vienna
Summer 2020

A performative concert where we got together slowly and curious in the middle of a square of Meidlinger Markt. Each and everyone of us holding a piece they found in the urban environment – plastic foils, small wooden forks, small pebbles and more became our instruments, our tools to perceive our surroundings in a different manner. Once we arrived we raised our voices and sang our concert ranging trough different genres, languages and melodies. Echoing through the streets of the 12th district in Vienna..

SOHO Ottakring Festival

1160 Vienna
Spring 2020

For the SOHO Ottakring Festival the CCC produced a video, as any concerts were still not possible due to Corona. Finally the choir was able to meet again (with a lot of distance) in public spaces. But for us it was a beautiful respite between lockdowns as we claimed the 16th district and different locations in it - ranging from rooftops, parks, hallways to public squares. Each place would get their own song. Occasionally people passed by and were able to witness these brief songs and smiled. We also had the honor to work with the composer Nava Hemyari. She composed a site specific piece, which was experimenting with soundscapes, bubbley sounds and more.

Staircase Concert #2

University for applied Arts Vienna, Vordere Zollamtstraße 3
Spring 2020

Our second staircase concert was in a slightly different context. It was not about connecting strangers but rather the students of a university. As a few members of the collective are connected to the university of applied arts Vienna we organized a concert there so that students might briefly stop their work, open up their doors and briefly hear the charming songs that where echoing through the halls of Angewandte. A respite from work and stress – breaking the everyday.

Excursion Sofia

Sofia, Bulgaria
01-05.02.2020

Our first excursion was to Bulgaria Sofia as one of the founding members of the choir is Bulgarian and invited the collective for a beautiful journey. In the spirit of the choir we claimed many different places in Sofia for singing. A courtyard, inside of the metro and in some hot springs. We also had the opportunity to sing along a local choir and formed our first bounds to other choirs.

Staircase Concert #1

Schleifmühlgasse, 1040 Wien
Winter 2019

The concept of a staircase choir concert was our first self initiated project and came into being through a discussion around what unusual yet acoustically beautiful places exist. It was during that time that we also started to get a better understanding on what a collective means – we internally started to organize in working groups, used existing skills (in this particular case graphic design) and had interesting discussions. It all concluded in our first staircase choir concert. The purpose – to sing in unusual places and connect neighbors that normally would stay inside never using the staircases for anything else other than transition. It was at this concert were we also talked about our history, our dream and the individual stories that live inside the collective for the first time. Beautiful voices along candles on a staircase with smiling neighbors and friends.

Urbanize 2019

Belvedere 21
8-13.10.2019

With the statement “Alle Tage Wohnungsfrage” Urbanize 2019 was raising questions around fair rent prices, who owns property and what adequate housing means. The CCC create a performance, where song text were rewritten to reflect the topic of Urbanize 2019. The audience was entering Belvedere 21, the choir was standing in to opposing lines repeating sentences like “How much for a little roof over your head”, “Alle Tage Wohnungsfrage” and others, in order to enter the exhibition you had to pass through the choir confronting them with the topic. A mixture between intervention and performance. In the end the choir also performed a regular concert with a diversity of songs.

Fredericke

Vienna 1140
Autum 2019

Fredericke - A roof construction for public spaces, creating a room for discussion, art and culture in the 14th district. Fragile, always moving as it needs to be held in order to stay. A statement that space needs to be claimed and supported by people. The Construction Choir Collective was founded for this project and was setting it up in a performative manner. Rhythmically Pumping air into the plastic roof tiles, singing a diverse repertoire and creating lingering soundscapes, holding Fredericke whilst other artists used it as a stage. In this project we constructed, we found our uniform – the Blaumann – and it paved the way for our everlasting dream of a choir collective.This project was imaged by Daniel Aschwanden and Michael Wallraff.

Projects


The history of the CCC

The collective was orignally founded summer 2019 for a project called “Fredericke”. The goal of this project was to create room for art, cultur and music in public space. In a performative manner we set up a roof construction that even fully set up needed people in order to support it becoming a metaphorical showcase of what a collective means. Through this project we also got our name “Construction Choir Collective” and our uniform the blaumann.

Afterwards the spirit of the collective was already so strong that we decided to go forward with it without a second thought. Kicking off years with many different projects - performativ and musically. Selfe initiated staircase concerts, so that neigbouhrs get to know each other, performances at Wiener Festwochen and Urbanize, excursions to Bulgaria to meet choirs from a different culture and to celebrate the birthday of our conductor or a concert in a sightseeing bus, where we also told the story of our collective. And many more..

Even Corona could not stop us as we were still rehearsing - muted on a zoom call alone in our room to a youtube tutorial. What holds us together is a vision, a spirit, a bond. In summer 2019 we allowed ourself to collectively dream a beautiful dream and even if the circumstances change, members taking a break, new voices starting to sound, old ones fading away for good. The body of the collective will always life on and will transform the atmospheres of cities and its people through its voice.
