Visions of America: Amériques
Audio/Visual Performance conducted by Esa-pekka Salonen, performed by Los Angeles Philharmonic
6th of November, 2014
Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles
Refik Anadol’s site-specific architectural video installation, which was developed to illuminate and enhance the Varèse’s composition and to activate the architecture of Walt Disney Concert Hall. The dynamic visual program created uses custom-built algorithmic sound analysis to listen and respond to the music in real time, using architecture as a canvas and light as a material. Additionally, the movements of Salonen, as he conducts, will be captured by next generation Microsoft Kinect hardware and 3-D depth camera analysis to inform the visuals displayed. The result was a powerful and immersive experience for the audience that engaged their visual and auditory senses.
