Lighteratune Reading presented at Georgia Tech Centre for Music Technology

place: Atlanta, USA
organiser: Georgia Tech Centre for Music Technology
Luminoacoustic artwork Lighteratune Reading by Bojan Gagić and Miodrag Gladović was presented yesterday in the finals of the international competition for music innovators Margaret Guthman Musical Instrument Competition at Georgia Tech Centre for Music Technology in Atlanta, USA.

LIGHTUNE.G (light+melody+tone G/50Hz) is the name of the collaborative duo consisting of Bojan Gagic and Miodrag Gladovic, which they are using to put on their first collaborative project, Lighterature Reading. The project is based on the conversion of light from luminous objects into tone images via the photovoltaic effect generated through solar panels (under the influence of light, solar panels - silicon cells - produce electricity the strength of which depends upon the intensity of the light). Hence the name that defines the performance and the composition technique - luminoacoustics. Different sources of light (neon, halogen, LED, cigarette lighters, video projectors, etc.) generate different sound frequencies which, through further processing, can be transformed into a modular musical sketch. The base frequency is 50Hz (the tone G) and is a product of theatre lighting conversion.
