A living composition that eats light from the audience
LIGHT GOLIATH is a living composition, and like all living things it must eat. Light emitted in the darkened space nourishes the piece via ethereal sonic veins.
When night falls again, LIGHT GOLIATH returns with renewed, yet constantly decaying strength. Dynamic, responsive lighting is ubiquitous in live performance; it accentuates and elevates sonic experience. The audience once sought to communicate+commune with performers using lighters, now they wave cell phone flashlights. What if this practice were an instrument?
