SILHOUETTE
A project of an immaterial space where movement is instantly transformed into sound and colour, the former generated by an electrical current and the latter by light. Viewers can play the instrument without the need to touch it. Space is constructed through the arrangement of bodies and shadows and sounds generated by hand movement. Viewers dive into space trying to touch it. Something is created together with other people. The installation makes space audible and visualizes its interferences: the way in which its layers interpenetrate and overlap. Each layer affects the next and colours mix and mingle like multiple dimensions of reality. The installation allows us to see what usually remains imperceptible, even though it surrounds us and makes us experience space.

Duration (minutes)

600

What is needed

space: room with white wall without window, the white wall dimensions about: length 4-5m and height 2,5-3m, equipment: current, 3 floodlight led, stacking hi-fi with loud speaker

What the artists brings

We use "theremin", which is an electronic musical instrument controlled without physical contact by the performer. The instrument's controlling section consists metal antenna that sense the relative position of the human's hands and control oscillators for frequency with one hand, and amplitude (volume) with the other. The electric signals from the theremin are amplified and sent to a loudspeaker. The sound of the instrument is often associated with eerie spaces. The sounds created on the "theremin" naturally combine with the colors that change on the wall depending on the movement of the hand. We can feel the synesthesia of space - its sound and colors that are not visible in reality, but surround us every day.
