Anton Bruckner frequently visited the Weilenböck and Lang families in Neufelden. He traveled there on the Mühlkreis railway, which opened in 1888, walked along the Große Mühl and also played the church organ in Neufelden. The Neufelden (1919-1924), Aschach and Ottensheim dams had not yet been built at the time.
In the now massively changed landscape between Neufelden and Linz, the coda from Bruckner's Fourth Symphony, also known as The Romantic, will be played on 7 July 2024. However, not the usual version, but rather one based on a score by the artist, Michael Pisaro-Liu: he has arranged the moving and stirring piece of music for the 90 brass players who will make the Danube between Neufelden and Linz resound in Bruckner's tones. On 7 July 2024, the river and dams will become a space for listening.

On 7.7.2024, the river and dams will each become a listening room for around 40 minutes.

The striking similarity between a recurring theme from Bruckner's Fifth Symphony and a guitar riff by the White Stripes - in their song, the Seven Nation Army - is the godmother of this ten-piece electric guitar ensemble. In this field of tension between high culture, popular culture and avant-garde, the collective dedicates itself to this very riff. In essence, this is less a case of "stealing the stolen" or an act of appropriation but rather a recuperation. Experimental surfaces of sound encounter incisive repetitions of the Bruckner riff in variations and with subtle shifts. The result is a a monstrous sound aesthetic, a hybrid of Anton Bruckner, the White Stripes and the loud electric guitar symphonist, Glenn Branca.
