Invited to exhibit at the Austrian Cultural Forum in London, TomaÅ¾ Kramberger and me started rehearsing Austro Pop songs. In London we performed them in various location using busking as the form of practice.
One crucial function of cultural institutions representing a nation abroad is to make its cultural heritage visible and accessible. We reckon that a strong part of the ACFâ€™s representational focus has been the promotion of music. Austria (its historical developments as a country, respectively) has been generating vastly influential and world-renowned composers and musicians throughout centuries.
Reflecting on this point we decided to work with that legacy and extend it to the recent development in popular music.
