Laura Luna Performs New Panoramic Concert at EMPAC [Berkshire on Stage]

On Friday (November 17), Mexican artist and composer Laura Luna will perform a new multimedia work to cap a residency at EMPAC at RPI in Troy. The performance has been designed for and will take place within EMPAC’s immersive, 360-degree panoramic screen.

A photographer turned video and film artist, Laura Luna began to experiment with music in 2013. Perceiving sound as a powerful art form for enhancing memories and narratives, she recorded sounds around her that triggered emotions and memory fragments, building them into a rich tonal music. Using field recordings, voice, a modded Atari computer, a Gameboy and various synths, she constructs sounds to describe fantastical scenes and narratives, creating soundtracks for sublimely fogged-in and heart-rending science fiction worlds. In 2014, she released the experimental album Isolarios, inspired by stories about lost cosmonauts, expeditions without return, magical realism and the works of Italo Calvino.
