Some more pictures of MULTIPLE voice/vision – BACH

This photo-selection documents the process of setting up the installion for the premiere of MULTIPLE voice/vision – BACH at AMUZ 1 october 2011.
It took 3 (very) long days, plus on the fourth day – saturday oct 1 – final finetuning and a general rehearsal with the musicians before the concerts in the evening.

Premiere MULTIPLE voice/vision @ AMUZ – 1 oct 2011

About a month ago MULTIPLE voice/vision – BACH had its premiere at the concerthall of AMUZ in Antwerp.

From MULTIPLE voice/vision -BACH premiere 1 oktober 2011

Through the use of anamorphosis, and especially through the multiple use of anamorphosis, I challenge the traditional audience-screen configuration. On top of that, the sheer size of the installation – 10.40 meters in diameter – demands for activity of the observer. Instead of a viewer immobilized in an Albertian tradition of static one-point perspective representation, the observer becomes an active participant, whose full sensorium of vision, hearing, feeling, walking … is called upon.

In this dynamic act of exploring the multiple images and sounds on offer in the audiovisual installation, the peripathetic observer becomes an active participant in the articulation of the projected – or (re-)presented – objects, and constructs his own perspective on the music performed.

I currently have a PhD fellowship at KU Leuven, Associated Faculty of the Arts. This blog documents my PhD research, where I explore the workings of cylindrical anamorphosis in audiovisual media. My practice based arts research shows an evolution towards installation-based works.
