Sound Of Wake – Wakeboarder Plays Big In Salzburg
Austrian pro wakeboarder Dominik Hernler on a mission to play with the Salzburg Philharmonic Orchestra
sticking to the diktat “holiday at home”, Austrian pro wakeboarder Dominik Hernler sets out to explore Mozart’s haunt of Salzburg, Austria on a mission to play with the Salzburg Philharmonic Orchestra. The 28-year-old’s instrument of choice is his well-tuned wakeboard and a pair of cymbals. Confused?
Just wait for the crescendo.
Hernler’s adventure kicks off with a wakeskate down the Salzach River, traverses the Hellbrunn Palace and Leopoldskron Pond, through the Mirabell Gardens and then into the old town, before the final smash of his cymbals for conductor Elisabeth Fuchs and the Salzburg Philharmonic Orchestra, in the Large Festival Hall. Check out the incredible picture essay and next-level video clip, set to a collaborative piece by DJ duo Camo & Krooked and the Austrian classical composer Christian Kolonovits and played by the Red Bull Symphonic.
