"As spectacular as the Iguazú Falls are (we were there in November, in the South American spring, the rivers were rich with water) – the most impressive thing was the hike above the falls, from where they could only be heard, but not seen. For hours the path went flat over small bridges and islands, the water below passed through, visibly speeding up, and disappeared from view, and we knew that in a few minutes it would plunge down hundreds of metres in free fall." (Georg Friedrich Haas) The acceleration of gigantic quantities of water on the border between Argentina and Brazil (312 times that of Austria‘s largest waterfalls in Krimml) led Georg Friedrich Haas to compose a rhythmic infinite spiral for ten soundmakers – to be discovered during a walk in the MAK.
