Lames @ NAISA is an interactive installation by Sonia Paço-Rocchia for an ensemble of automated musical saws (FYI Lames means Blades in French). The piece is a sonic story about what it feels not to walk on the beaten track, the anxiety and the liberty it gives. The installation magically brings to life the inherent musicality of saw blades and is composed by the spatial positioning of visitors listening to the installation. Sonia Paço-Rocchia, based in Montréal, has appeared in past NAISA performances as a composer, bassoonist and creator of mechanically operated instruments.
