The 'SOUNDING LIGHT INSTRUMENT' includes light sensors, i-cube and Lisa software. It unfolds into a big range of performative possibilities. As the architecturally-scaled instrument it is, it can playfully (re)establish the relationships between a site and its environmental context.Natural and artificial light, body shadow or video may affect the processing of audio samples, or the modulating of audio frequencies, or the processing of a live-input. The inconstant behavior of light guarantees certain unpredictability.
The physical and visual aspects of the instrument are of core importance. Sensor cables are very long; they are hung from the ceiling as volumetric drawings.
