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.

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 that range from playful clicks and dramatic echoes to quickening ambient rhythms. Created in 2012 by Montréal-based composers and sound artists Adam Basanta (whose electroacoustic and instrumental compositions have received numerous awards in North America and Europe), Julian Stein and Max Stein (co-creators of the Montreal Sound Map, among other projects and compositions), the collaborative audiovisual project has manifested differently in music venues and galleries across Canada and at NYC’s 2015 MATA Festival. 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.
