What does light sound like? How does light feel? What is technical, what is organic?
The visitors enter a room in which different installations are positioned. Illuminated lines on the floor indicate which path can be taken. Motion sensors activate dimmer packs as soon as people approach. This is the way to explore the first two "stations". Flickering fluorescent tubes regulated to 20% by the dimmer. Wanting to start again and again. Flickering and clicking. Cool light, hectic.
In contrast, there are three temperature radiators with warm light, real warmth. They are controlled by the dimmer. They go on and off again, one after the other, in time. The beat can be heard. Where does the clicking come from?
In the middle of the room, another installation that is illuminated over time. A pad with luminous buttons comes into focus. If one of these is pressed, one of several dynamically programmed scenes starts, in which light and sound have been programmed in a closely interlocked manner. Visitors no longer approach an object, they stand in the middle of it. Stand in the middle of it.
The sounds of the lights were recorded and provide the basis for the sound tracks, partly modified, woven into rhythms and surfaces. Sometimes spherical, sometimes powerful. Wafting walls, intangible strobo.
In addition to researching sounds and lighting moods, dovetailing the control of sound and lighting programming through MIDI is an essential part of the work.
The artists of this production study Lighting Design at the HAWK Hildesheim. In the course "Light Scenography" they have found a common denominator. "Light and Sound!" Besides their fascination with lighting, Richard and Maddy have spent time of their lives producing and exploring electronic music. Juri is a trained lighting technician and worked in theater for a few years. Jonas has been active in festival organization and implementation for several years.
