Conductor is highly interactive and allows the participant to take on the role of an invisible but omnipotent celestial force manipulating the orbits of the planets with a variety of gestures. As the planets align, the feedback comes in the form of a dynamic soundtrack which grows ever more complex as the player’s gestures become more pronounced.
The use of sound in both Conductor and Ice Angel, which is inherent to the very structure of the artworks, has become a central compositional tool in the artist’s practice alongside the use of touch, movement and sight. Ultimately Harris seeks to create a totally immersive sensory experience for the viewers that engage the both physically and emotionally.
