THE ENLIGHTENMENT

 

A project by | Quiet ensemble

Organization | Claudio Ponzana

Curator | Federica Patti - roBOt Festival 14

Co-Producion | roBOt Festival, Teatro Potlach

Partner | Artisti Drama, Q-02 Bruxelles

 

A concert where the classical orchestra and instruments are replaced by an electric set up. Instead of violins are neon lights, to replace drums are strobe lights and instead of clarinets we will see theatrical headlights illuminating the audience. Through copper coils and a particular process it will be possible to extrapolate the sound of electric current going from the circuits to the lamps so giving “voice” to the electric musical instruments.

The sound of every single light will be modified in real time and summed up with all the other instruments (lighting systems) making audible the “hidden concert” of pure light. Each lamp has its own sound, formed by the amplification of its “buzzing”, the murmur and disturbance that is usually elimi- nated during concerts and performances, generated by electrical energy that powers each lighthouse.

The frequencies and heat emitted by the lights are perceived under the skin and vary according to the size and type of each lamp. The Enlightenment is a summary presentation of the sound material hidden inside every light that makes up the set. Every light in the concert externalizes its frequency sound, stripped of our eyes of his sound and gives it to us.
