Transmediale 2013- Let There Be Light and Sound

Ray vibration explore in their performance WMSWF (We Make Sound With Fire) through heating, inflammation and cooling-down audio-visual qualities of various materials, remaining to an alchemical laboratory. They are working with candles, Bunsen burner and beeswax, also producing projections, made by overhead projectors, of heat-driven windmills, which simultaneously function as solar synthesizers.

 

Fluorescene, an improvised light and sound performance by Phillip Stearns, investigates the transmutability of sonic and visual medium through electromagnetism into trans-sensory experiences. Using energy saving light bulbs, light and electromagnetic interference is captured by different sensors and converted into sound. The amplified sound is then used to drive electricity back to the compact fluorescent lamps, completing an audio-visual feedback circuit.

Caution for epileptics: This performance contains strobe light! (Some people had to leave the room during the presentation. I myself was not so much affected, hiding behind the cam.)
