Traces of Light

Can we perceive light as music?

In Traces of Light, we explore the possibilites to experience music with our eyes. Our brain is constantly retraining it’s nueral pathways and if one of our senses get degraded, other senses will take over that capacity. Neuroplasticity is the term for how our brain adapt to new situations in life.

Each sound in the piece is triggering each light on the floor. WHat you hear is reflected in the lights.

A musical pattern begin the piece, and a light pattern is introduced. Our brain gets trained that the sound pattern and light pattern are the same. At the end of the piece the sound of the pattern has faded away and only the light pattern is there.

Can we still hear the music?
