Performance with frozen lightbulbs melting at Contemporary Music Festival, Plymouth 2014. The performance was by David Strang + Sean Williams.
This work involves hanging blocks of ice with lightbulbs and microphones frozen inside above suspended metal bowls. As the ice melts, droplets land in the bowls which are amplified and used to trigger the corresponding lights to flash on. For this performance the droplets were also used to trigger synthesis that involved electromagnetic signals of the system.
This was the second performance at PACMF 2014.
