Cecilia Lopez machinic fantasies

New York. May 8. machinic fantasies is a performative installation based on the idea of producing a sonic and visual live “mediation process/machine”. The work, which is the result of Argentinean composer and artist Cecilia Lopez’s investigations spanning many years, utilizes multichannel video and sound spatialization techniques to augment the audience’s perception of specific kinetic sound objects. Used as filters for sonic material, ranging from appropriated sound and field recordings to spoken word and live acoustic/electronic instruments, these objects, built by turning oil drums into revolving playback systems, will be hand-spun by performers throughout the piece. Simultaneously their image will be captured and projected on to different screens, composing an environment focused on matters of immersion, mediation, synchronicity, and asynchronicity.
