fLOW is a site-specific work-in-progress that was started under ever-changing titles in October 1998. The entire project is carried out in numerous steps and takes place in various location with changing musicians from different fields like New Music, experimental jazz, free improvisation and New Electronic Music.

fLASH is the 19th realisation within this project and is carried out in collaboration with the artists group dynamo who built a sound diffusion system consisting of 16 loudspeakers which are controlled by a specially designed analog audio hardware. Their system allows to distribute sounds using algorithms or gestural controls in a way that turns the loudspeaker setup (in conjunction with the space) into a challenging 3-dimensional instrument.

fLASH consists of 9 sections which explore different types of sound structures. The sound material is played live by Karlheinz Essl on his computer-based electronic instrument m@ze°2 and processed live by the members of dynamo.
