Light Bulb Music (2009) - Michael Vorfeld

By Ceci Moss

Michael Vorfeld is a very original German percussionist and sound installation artist. His Light Bulb Music was developed during live performances using a collection of colored amplified light bulbs and electrical apparatus. The electricity is used to make the glass bulbs resonate, however briefly, and the music arises from the multiple clicks and pops of bulbs and electrical switches. Vorfeld plays on the bulb’s fragility on one side, and the danger emanating from his less than secure electric installation on the other.

Thanks for sharing that link! She actually just wrote me last night, possibly after seeing this post, and sent over her myspace:
It looks/sounds really interesting.
