between the river danube and the motorway along the riverbank, in the midst of event gastronomy, real estate investing and tower blocks, fall winds become signals: vital signs of one of the most famous parts of viennese cultural life. the electronic music scene explores the synergies between open spaces, architecture and artistic presentation in public space.

10 years after the founding of vienna's electronic musical scene's most important labels (g-stone, cheap, mego, to name but a few) and the first gatherings of this new musical movement at the PHONOtaktik.95 festival, spread over the whole city and followed two years later by picknick mit herrmann, pioneers and newcomers now present themselves together again.

including visuals and light designs utilising the surrounding architecture, temporary art space palais donaustadt, future site of the second highest building of vienna, becomes the stage and creates the atmosphere for the advanced sound of the city – opening the «electronic autumn» for more than 7000 employees and 3000 inhabitants of donaucity and excursions of the viennese musical community.
