Music for 12 Domestic Lamps @ Café Zosha

Café Zosha

January 14, 2013

Adam Basanta, Julian Stein, and Max Stein will have two performances of their project “Music For 12 Domestic Lamps” at Café Zosha in Mile End, Montreal (5731 Ave du Parc) on January 14 and 15, 2013 at 8pm.

Music for 12 Domestic Lamps is an installation and performance work for 12 sound and light emitting lamps. Each lamp is discreetly outfitted with a surface transducer speaker, turning the lamps into both light and sound emitters. The work investigates the potential of domestic objects, both to recall their quotidian functions and – through aesthetic transformation – transcend them.

The lamps will be performed upon by an electroacoustic improv-trio (A. Basanta, J. Stein, M. Stein), and will also run autonomously as a composed sound and light installation.
