We built this city on rock and roll


This is at least the soundtrack we think about to this clip. In our office space at the pavillion we have continuously played music with loudspeakers connected to our computers. It is the same music as we normally play in our office in Sweden, as it is the same computers (although we nowadays mostly play in the evenings and nights). In an office, music needs to be orchestrated to follow the different phases of a working day, so that it gives relaxation when it should, intensity when it should, and mild creativity when it should. Perhaps this is in parity with the needs of the Biennale viewer too.
