Lightune.G (HR) Lighterature Reading: Chapter 10

performance & artist talk

Lighterature Reading: Chapter 10, the tenth chapter of a series of unique and site specific luminoacoustic performances by the collaborative duo from Zagreb and Zadar, and presented under the mutual stage name - Lightune.G. Since 2011 the duo has been presenting new chapters of the unique method of luminoacoustics - the conversion of light from light objects into tonal images by using a photovoltaic effect of solar panels. This is the origin of the name luminoacounstics – defining the technique of composition and generating of sound from various light sources (tungsten, LED, video projection, fluorescent lamps, camera flashes, etc.); combining and processing of different series of frequencies and luminous elements results in modular music sketches. For their work on developing luminoacousticsLightune.G received the third prize at the prestigious Margaret Guthman New Musical Instrument Competition held in Atlanta, USA in 2012.

Lightune.G (HR)

Lightune.G was founded in 2011 as a desire to present the results of the luminoacoustic research of two Croatian artists - Miodrag Gladović and Bojan Gagić - which started in previou year. The name of the duo emerged from their first experiments, during which they performed with classical tungsten light sources producing a sound of 50 Hz (~G1). After the first series of Lighterature Readings (performances/concerts/installations) in which they created music using various types of artificial lighting and nine solar panels, they later started researching the sound produced by a natural light source – the Sun. In 2013 they presented their ‘mobile luminoacoustic’ project – Route 666, and a year later they built their first luminoacoustic object – Luminophone. Later on, they have collaborated with many other artists and festivals (Mirela Ivičević, Hugo Morales, Ana Horvat, Davorka Begović, Cantus Ensemble, Showroom of Contemporary Sound, Heart of Noise, Touch Me, Device_art).
