Reveries for a Dimly-Lit Room, 2018–2019
slow-evolving meditations, textural nuances, entraining reveries
psychophysical explorations of repetition and phasing, synchrony and asynchrony
microscopic perception of emergence in sound and light
kinetik–kymatik, developed together with Dmitrii Kuznetsov, exhibited in autonomous-mode at GOLD+BETON. Waveform patterns emerge slowly in the interference of subtly-nuanced synthesizer drones (affecting water via a transducer) and stroboscopic modulation over the course of two weeks.

Reveries for a Dimly-Lit Room, excerpts from performance № 1… in the back of a small abandoned bus at Night Light Festival, a trialogue of slowly-morphing analog-mechanical light projection, layered live-looped melorhythmic phrases, and spoken word explores emergence in ostinato feedback processes and crossrhythmic interference patterns. together with Johann Zeijl (keys, loops) and Sylvester Allone (texts, voice).

Autonomous Lumia Study № 1
a falling weight pulls the barely-visible line through a pulley system to oscillate a lens, rotate a color wheel, pull a lamp, a fan in water slows, fully wound runs resists the weight for ca. 30 minutes
Lumia experiments with DIY tangible mechanical light projection apparatuses inspired by Thomas Wilfred’s color-organs of the 1920s. Lamps, lenses, mirrors, analog electronics. Color records by Julia Alfeo.
