In addition to the visual logo, KulturEXPO Anton Bruckner 2024 now also has a sonic identifier in the form of the sound logo that will accompany all activities in 2024.
In the fall of 2022, an international tender for a sound logo was initiated. Among others, designs were submitted from Taiwan, Hungary, Italy, Germany and Lebanon. The submissions were anonymously submitted to the jury, consisting of experts from the music and media sector, for evaluation. In the end, the entry by Alexander Koller from Steinhaus near Wels was able to convince the jury.
"It is more than obvious for the Bruckner anniversary year 2024 to also create a sound recognition mark. It is particularly pleasing that Alexander Koller from Upper Austria was able to prevail with his proposal in the international competition with 48 submissions and 114 entries," said Governor Mag. Thomas Stelzer.
"Draw attention to Bruckner in ten seconds? For every person on our musical planet? You need his top hits, otherwise you're "totally lost". So: Bruckner's wind chorale from the 5th symphony and his most performed work "Locus iste" for mixed choir a-capella. Mix these two ingredients and as a secret spice add a female voice, a children's voice and a male voice with pedagogically valuable information and the AnTon Signation is ready", composer Alexander Koller explained his recipe for success.
