Augusto Meijer – “Matera” (2016) was performed on October 27th at EMUFest – International Electroacoustic Music Festival.
This electroacoustic composition was presented in the “Conservatorio di Musica Santa Cecilia” situated in Rome, Italy.
An excerpt from “Matera”:
“Light Dome” is a light installation project by Har Hollands.
This project is exhibited in combination with a spatial sound production by Augusto Meijer at GLOW Eindhoven 2016.
The purpose of the sound production is to enhance the spatial effect.
Design: Har Hollands
Sound: Augusto Meijer
“Last year, the project Light Dome, created by the Eindhoven light artist Har Hollands, was still under construction and could be seen in its first raw form. This year, we can enjoy the fully completed light installation as it had originally been designed.
With this quality impulse, the owner of the Heuvel shoppping center, CBRE Global Investors, enhances the attractiveness of Eindhoven as a shopping city. And it bears witness of the vision that they chose for a permanent light installation under the big dome of the Forum, so appropriate to Eindhoven City of Light.
The light dome consists of 121 light-transparent tubes, provided with reflecting layers. Every tube is attached to a cable and can be positioned at different heights, operated by an engine. The cable conducts electricity to the 20 light sources in each tube, thus generating a palette of colours. Eight loudspeakers will produce the sound to enhance the spatial effect. A central control system makes sure all movements, light- and sound effects are synchronised in order to create a coherent spectacle.”
