Magicians of Light and Sound
When I saw this video still from Euphorie, an audio visual show performed in Paris by François Wunschel and Fernando Favier, I sort of expected two Jedi performers battling it out to music. Actually, it’s much cooler than that.
According to their website, 1024 Architecture (one of the show’s producers) “focuses on the interaction between body, space, sound, visual, low-tech and hi-tech, art and architecture.” Small white lights, which move like schools of glowing fish in a black sea, move at the command of the artists’ wands. The shards of light swirl, twist, explode, shimmy, and hop around the stage in a transfixing performance.
I have no idea how they pull this off, and like any good magician, they don’t reveal any secrets–at least not in any language I can read. See for yourself, they put on quite a show. And please, if you can figure out their tricks, let me know.
