melodicum saxum (13'15s)

The player will show in this paragraph
The music originally came from a music piece that was titled "composition for cosmos winds". It is made of 12 layers of my own vocal recordings. I also extracted a few samples from these vocals and played them with a Midi keyboard, adding 4 layers of that kind.

 

 

The installation is of variable dimnsions. At the Governors Island Art Fair, it spreads over 3 different rooms that all open on the same landing, allowing the viewer to see them all at the same time. 3 lights in each room are made of plastic sheeting, rebar and a light. They are controlled by a multi dimmer unit that is synched with the music. It is like a moving, pulsating breathing "tableau".
