Opening tomorrow (Wednesday) at EMPAC are two intriguing sound-art installations by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot.
On the mezzanine, the installation untitled (Series #3) unfolds with bowls, dishes, and glasses floating in several pools of water. As these objects touch, the space is filled with their fleeting, floating music.
The second installation, index (v.4), is an interpretation of EMPAC’s communication network activity, played by two-computer controlled pianos at the entrances at each end of the building. Software written in collaboration with EMPAC’s IT team monitors the networks and translates bits and pieces into musical notes for the pianos—using the computers and pianos to connect work and play.
The exhibit runs through September 1.
