The artwork deploys over the sloping wall of the two floors dominating the main entrance hall. The work consists of a large, textured mural that was built with mirror-polished stainless steel cut-outs. It features black imprints on the metal parts as well as on the white back wall. Letters are hinted at throughout the work. Musical writings from various eras are superimposed onto this montage and shaped graphically into discs.

Text theme: 

This mirror-artwork embraces its entire surroundings, offering a sensory experience of the architectural features that lets everyone choose their point of view. Reflections and plays on perception give the impression that the space increases tenfold. Its content gives rhythm to the comings and goings of the musicians and spectators when the place becomes very busy on concert nights.
