L.O.L.B. amplifies a common object into a dynamic, light beaming, sound instrument, thanks to new technologies and performative action.
Resembling of a solo concert, L.O.L.B. has as its core an amplified desk lamp, explored in all its sonorities by one performer.
An important characteristic of the lamp is its mobility, that amplifies the physical performance and modifies the original sound, thanks to a custom made interface and digital audio processing.
The spatial position of the light source is tracked by a camera and translated into parameters usable by the audio engine.
The only light in the performance is the lamp’s bulb. The moving lamp is acting as a dynamic lighting device. It looks in different direction, behaving like a curious creature, illuminating different part of the environment, scanning through the audience and sometimes blinding the people.
The result is a sound performance where natural and artificial tones fuse seamlessly, developing in time, combining with light, thru the actions of the performer and its instrument.
