Music for Lamps is an installation and performance work for 12 sound and light emitting lamps. Each lamp is discreetly outfitted with a surface transducer speaker, turning the lamps into both light and sound emitters. The lamps are arranged to both surround and permeate audience members, creating a 12 channel light and 14 channel sound performance.

This work explores the continuum between the abstract qualities of sound and light, and the evocative qualities of domestic objects. Re-animated through digital technology, the lamps’ every “performance” is pulled apart and recombined in a novel manner. In this sense, Music for Lamps investigates both the potential of domestic objects, recalling their everyday functions and - through aesthetic transformation - transcending them. 

Lamps may behave as individuals, or as part of a larger ensemble, manifesting various behaviours in light and sound. Each lamp possesses its own resonant "voice" and sonic character in accordance to the size and material of which it is made. In their own voices - distinct both sonically and visually - the lamps, at times playful, emotive, and dramatic, become as characters in the piece.

Music for Lamps @ 2015 MATA Festival (New York, NY)

Music for Lamps (Adam Basanta + Julian Stein + Max Stein)

Description: Music for Lamps is an installation and performance work for 12 sound and light emitting lamps by laptop trio Adam Basanta, Julian Stein, and Max Stein. The performance will be our USA premiere, and will take place at the Kitchen (512 W 19th St) on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at 8pm. 

MAD FILAMENTS AND UNGOVERNABLE SHOOTS

MATA goes full blast in an unforgettable evening that probes all that we understand to work together to create music. Norwegian composer Bjørn Erik Haugen’s Summon transforms images to sound and back to image, questioning if what we see is really what we intend it to be. Mirela Ivičević, in her Orgy of References, takes on the role of the composer, their resumes in particular, giving a new take on the litany of accolades that fill them. Meanwhile American Megan Grace Beugger’s Liaisons connects a dancer to a prepared piano via a pulley system – what is more important: the sound or the performance? Serbian composer Jasna Veličković tears apart the instrument, creating music instead with electromagnets in hersUn. Finally, Music for Lamps – the trio of Adam Basanta, Max Stein, and Julian Stein – puts forth a clean slate in which tens of table lamps outfitted with transducers create their own music.
