audiovisual kinetic light art performance

ATOM is an audiovisual live performance created by light artist Christopher Bauder and musician and composer Robert Henke.

A room is filled with deep, evolving noises from a four-channel sound system.
An array of white, self-illuminated spheres floats in space like the atoms of a complex molecule. Through variable positioning and illumination of each atom, a dynamic display sculpture comes into being, composed of physical objects, patterns of light, and synchronous rhythmic and textural sonic events.

Change, sound, and movement converge into a larger form. The height of the helium balloons is adjusted with a computer-controlled cable, whilst the internal illumination is accomplished using dimmable super-bright LEDs, creating a pixel in a warped spatial matrix. The sonic events, the patterns of light, and the movement of the balloons are manipulated in real time.
