Jonathan Nangle Trip the Light Fantastic programme note
Trip the Light Fantastic is a solar activated, generative sound installation. Solar panels on each of the 'bells' gather light which is then converted to energy and stored. Once a certain threshold has been reached the stored energy is released driving a motor that strikes the bell. The piece relies entirely on the natural ambient light to create an ever shifting soundscape. Trip the Light Fantastic was commissioned by the Contemporary Music Centre for Culture Night 2011.
