Fallen Chandelier @ Pomezia Light Festival

21, 22, 23 September 2018

The audiovisual installation Fallen Chandelier is based on a sonification of a controlling system causing the flickering of forty light bulbs within a fallen chandelier. Twenty interconnected starters, similar those commonly found in fluorescent tubes, generate an irregular light rhythm. This occurs by means of bimetallic strips which are heated up in a tube and thus come in contact with one another in rapid sequence. This process is audible. Each starter generates its own rhythm, which has a different sound depending on the brand, make-up, and degree of wear of the starters. “I first listen to a lot of starters before I use them for an installation in the sense of composing.”
