Cecilia Arditto: Lab
Short Description / Kurzbeschreibung
LAB (2022) – Music lab probs and electronics by Cecilia Arditto Delsoglio mycb1.tv/music/ is a sound installation using laboratory props (water bath, centrifuge, vortexer, magnetic stirrer, and shaker) and electronics. Thus in LAB, laboratory props became musical instruments in dialogue with electronic prerecorded sounds. Colors, rhythms, and textures fuse the fascinating world of science with the world of music. Pipettes, test tubes, and shakers are our new stars disclosing their fascinating sonic and rhythmic possibilities. LAB opens the secluded life of the laboratory in the shape of music, and LAB also reveals the world of contemporary music to the audience, bringing its abstract and refined sphere closer. LAB brings worlds together by navigating science and music, opening new creative paths which present unexpected perspectives.
