Arne Bock traveld with dutch based New European Ensemble to function as sound designer and live mixing for 3 major performances During the Made festival 2014
1st Concert: Saiyah
How does the blue? Which timbre is yellow? Saiyah, which premiered at MADE, multimedia artist Yoko Seyama and composer Benjamin Stearn created a work in which the sounds/timbres, color and form are in constant harmony. A captivating interaction between music and enigmatic light sculptures in constant motion. One of the starting point is Staerns ability to associate tones with colors, so-called synesthesia.
Music: Benjamin Staern
Scene Picture: Yoko Seyama
Artistic and interdisciplinary coordination: Christian Karlsen
In close collaboration with composer and video designer Jean Baptiste Barierre, Arne Bock did the live mixing on a 8 speaker surround system and with Nerw European Ensemble conducted by Christian Karlsen, did the first ever live performance of Nox Borealis.
