Astrid Seme’s piece Wien Mitte lets the gaps in language resonate. She finds this sphere in the blank between the two words "Wien Mitte“ (Vienna Center) spoken by a male voice. Slowly Seme zooms literally into the center of the words, between “n” and “M”, to the short break the speaker makes. What sounds at first like a linguistic analysis becomes abstract, technical until it turns into a musical tune, which sounds like a cello playing in the center of Vienna Center.
