Insomnia Sketch Book
As part of C-Lab Sound Festival
This Insomnia Sketch Book finds its sources in the appearance of points of light piercing through complete darkness. Symbolic of flashes of consciousness, of states between wakefulness and sleep, of auditory hallucinations, of loss of spatio-temporal reference points, the trajectories of these balls of light, conceived by the Taiwanese collective LuxuryLogico, underlie the lines of Andrea Cera's electronic score. A motorized structure makes it possible to manipulate this mobile. To the challenge of engineering replies the challenge of composition: to imagine a music of affects - aggressions and reactions, rage, fear, or depression - where the poetics of the installation manifests itself. To listen with eyes wide open, to what the light will reveal, little by little, of the machinery: a theater of attention and tension.
