Blaus: Laser beams, Light and Sound Installation

Blaus Full Performance from Playmodes on Vimeo.

From the project website:

Blaus is a site-specific installation. The whole visual and sound creation is proposed by the architecture of the site where it’s held.

Blaus adapts itself and mutates on every location as a simple result of it’s perceptual origins: space, light and sound.

Through the use of self-made technologies, both hardware and software, Blaus re-draws the space by creating dynamical light figures which emerge from the architectural characteristics.

The mix of motorized laser beams, and mirrors on key points of the room allows for multiple dynamic combinations of three dimensional forms.

Also, the formal dramatism introduced by RGB light design, helps to reinforce the concepts behind each mutation.

At the same time, architecture itself is used as a musical source, since the study of the room acoustics and it’s resonance frequency allows for using the space as a giant musical instrument.

Anchoring on this resonance frequency and its harmonics, a sound composition is generated that matches and reinforces the architecture in the same way that laser does, allowing the space to speak.

Light and sound are always related in time, frequency and perceptive domains, as several self-made software algorithms link light, sound and movement in an intricate manner.
