A dozen lamps sit sentient next to audience members throughout a living room like space, ready to glow bright, dim or flicker as part of the minimalist, multichannel installation and performance work Music for Lamps. Outfitted with surface transducer speakers, the lamps emit not only light but their own sounds. An evocative ensemble, Music for Lamps transcends the domestic sphere while honouring it, heightens the digital while accentuating materiality, crafting an aesthetic transformation through music and light.
