Light Readings is an interactive media installation from composer Stephen Vitiello that explores how sound and light transform one’s experience of place. Vitiello sculpts a real-time composition by using small photocell devices to translate light frequencies into an ambient soundscape. Shifts in natural light from BAC’s expansive studio windows, and shadows of people moving through the space blend with bursts of urban sounds from the street below to create an immersive sonic and visual score.
The N.Y. Premiere of Light Readings is commissioned by BAC.
