Description
Light Stories in Rhythm is a lighting sculpture that embodies my personal relationship with instrumental music, as the ‘light’ that has inspired the creation of ideas, thoughts and abstract images. The rendition of these memories are projected through the subtle dance and movements of reflected light, responding to the tonal undulations of the notes with rhythm. The sculpture is a collection of wooden tubes which aesthetic language evokes my memories of the traditional instruments of the Andes: drums, flutes and zampoña. One the project’s goals is to bring back the performative and sensorial qualities of music that have been lost with the advent of new technologies, resulting in compressed, low quality reproductions. The mysticism of the act of playing and hearing music has been reduced to simple and binary activation inputs: on-off, play and stop, relegating the physicality and the relevance of the player apparatus as a now invisible medium.
