This is the very first ‘live’ installation performance by the ever-popular German Synthesizer Music maestro Wolfram Spyra!

The Treysa hospital dates back to 1364 when it functioned as an almshouse, giving shelter to the destitute.
Over time it transformed into a medical hospital, as we know them today.

The installation seeks to express this historic transformation. This is a room filling, site-specific sound installation with a compositional structure and external design that work together to suggest the original historical function of the building. The music is divided into three thematic sections, which refer to the borderline psychological experiences associated with the chapel’s past.

The music was played from an especially composed pre-recorded CD and is heard through loudspeakers placed in the corners of the room. The presence of several hospital beds underlines the compositional aspiration of the piece. Their apparently superficial symbolism is conscious and is substantially deepened by the musical experience. It is the intention of the artist that the visual elements of the installation combine with the acoustic accompaniment to lead the visitor to new forms of perception and the redefinition of the merely superficially known environment. The visitor thus has the chance to consciously become one with the historical implications of the space.

Music-wise it is a haunting, at times emotional, roller coaster that fits these times. Not Berlin School in its essence, but I recon this work is pure Spyra.

The release comes with a nice 8-Page Booklet that tells the story of this unique musical project!

‘Hospital’ was released on 12th March 2021.
