deLight pre-opening: a.melodie / AtomTone #280

Doors: 19:30 / Start time: 20:00
Entrance 6-10 euro (up to your offer)

Pre-opening of the deLight sustainable light-art festival with:

a.melodie by Mélodie Melak Fenez
a.melodie consists of self-made synthesizers that are hooked up to an array of plants. The plants, who have their own unique timber, shape the sound of each oscillator. Because of physiological reactions, the plants modulate the frequency they produce, creating an alive and ever morphing sound. On stage, a.melodie composes with the sounds produced and modulated live by the plants. Her sonic image evolves from minimalism to noise drone. Through the use of technology, she puts sounds where she cannot put words, in her interaction with vegetal elements.

AtomTone by Jiří Suchánek
AtomTone is an experimental project based on sonification of atomic data. Exact light frequencies of atomic spectra lines are recalculated into sound frequencies. Each element has its own specific spectral chord with which I am further working and shaping with buffering, filtering, waveshaping etc.

The shows take place in Spektrum during a pre-opening of the deLight sustainable light-art festival which will last until March 27. deLight is an environmentally-oriented light-art festival promoting sustainable lifestyles through contemporary art: we are establishing a new form of communication between eco-institutes, eco-initiatives, and audiences. /

Artist, organizer and curator Mélodie Melak Fenez lives and works in Berlin since 2009. She has a degree in art with a focus on communication. In the last 15 years, she has contributed to several arts collectives and cultural organizations. Since 2010, she has been part of the collective running the venue ausland, a territory for experimental sound, performance and art. In her work, she likes to question the place and role of the performer in experimental art, and investigate the relationship between the individual voice and the great melody, the articulation between solitude and community.

Since 2008 Jiří Suchánek is focused in building permanent audio-light installations that are usually interactive and placed in natural or public spaces (like a cave, astronomic observatory, bridge...). His artistic approach is synthetic. In his works he is connecting sound, light, sculptural objects, electronics + code and carefully chosen spaces. Through his work he explores relationship between nature, technology and durability of the electronic media in a wild climatic situations.
