In addition to sound and videoinstallations there was 2 live events where the public experienced the library late at night. With a specially designed lightsetting the public moved through several rooms staged with music readings and performance events.
In the reading room of the library there was an especially composed choirpiece for 6 male voices. The music was performed live at the event but was also present in the soundscape of the installations that were accessable to the public during the library opening hours.
