price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Room 237 launches its 2017 event calendar with the new sound and laser performance from Robert Henke AKA Monolake - A pioneer in computer generated sound and images & one of the main creators of the music software Ableton Live

Lumière III is the powerful, dramatic, minimalist, bright, loud, and poetic, third iteration of a long-term audiovisual concert project featuring immersive sound and high precision lasers. After more than six years of in-depth pursuit into the unique qualities of the medium, and more than three years since the premiere of Lumière I, the latest and third iteration: Lumière III, marks a huge advance.

Exploring new territories of breathtaking synesthetic expression, Lumière III unifies the raw qualities of the first iteration with the refinement of the second iteration: pushing this contrast to an unprecedented extreme.

Bringing Lumière to life involved the creation of original software. While coding algorithms is a typical part of Henke’s artistic practice, Lumière required a deeper and more rigorous level of development in building a unique framework for controlling lasers in ways not previously in existence. Within Henke’s own software, lasers become visual musical instruments, possessing unique properties and emergent behaviours. Drawing with light by aid of rapid, moving mirrors is creating high tech calligraphy, the resulting artefact and the precision of the process are two facets of one overarching technique.

Using high-precision lasers and computer coding algorithms, light dances to drones, glitches and sonic textures- The key to Lumière III is language: symbols, expressions, and communication noise on multiple levels.

Please note this is a seated show and split into two performances and separate ticketing is issued for each show.
