Sound, Light and Space

“Sound, Light and Space – there can be so many experiments, especially in a space like this. In this Tech Lab of ours, technologies are the main characters.”

Sound and Kinetic Installation (1) x Digital Music
Wittgenstein

This showcase is created with the music of the 2016 original multi-media theatre Wittgenstein as its blueprint. The audience will be seated inside a black box with four mirror walls, sound and a moving installation. They will be immersed in an experiment of continuous space and sounds, as if going on a rollercoaster ride for the senses.

Sound and Kinetic Installation (2) x Human Voice x Text
In Search of Lost Time


“When a person cannot possess, all he could do is not to forget.” Marcel Proust wrote In Search of Lost Time in the 20th century, in his struggle against oblivion in the stream of consciousness. A hundred years later, a journey begins from the present perspective and context; the audience is put inside a mirror maze with endless reflections of light and shadow, while they listen to the performers’ interpretations in different languages and tones. The sound designer uses mixing and sound installation to create an exploration of stage arts and technologies as well as literature, in search of reality and illusion in the remembrance of things past.
