This is the world premiere of Robert Jarvis "Concerto for Light Sculpture" as part of the International Space Time Concerto Competition.
Musically, the piece is inspired by much of Steve Reich's work, in particular, Music for 18 Musicians and Music for Large Ensemble. Visually, the piece is about data visualization, the mutual re-enforcing of musical and visual patterns and the emerging artforms arising from augmented reality.
The light sculpture is designed to be played completely live, just like a musical instrument. A digital musical interface called a Monome, with notes set out much like a guitar, is used to play both sound and light in tight sync. The piece is written to explore the interplay of musical and visual patterns.
