Disembodied Sound and Light Orchestra from Rita Evans on Vimeo.

Disembodied Light Orchestra 

A structure where participants and visitors to the space manipulate and improvise amplified materials to build moments of group understanding. Out of seemingly chaotic or awkward situations, moments of musicality emerge.

The light above changes hue and saturation in direct response to the playing below, creating a feedback system of influence.

This piece takes place at a convergence point in a building, a corridor or a space where many passages meet.

All sounds within the room are flattened into this digital image, which fluctuates, wavers and flickers in time.

Table 1) Most malleable: soft wet based materials (clay, pulps of fibres and water); 

Table 2) Middle: aluminium foil, bubble wrap, newsprint and baking paper;

Table 3) Least malleable materials, glass and metals
