Flame Sounds

Free entrance

Composer and curator Liisa Hirsch
Fire artist Chris Blaze McCarthy (Australia)
Sound engineer Tammo Sumera

At twilight there will be an experiment carried out where Australian fire artist Chris Blaze McCarthy and Estonian composer Liisa Hirsch will try to capture the sounds of live fire. The idea is to use fire as an instrument, the sounds of which occur from setting microphones at a distance to record the rotation of fire objects and Chris’ movements with the agility of martial arts. The captured sounds will be looped and amplified into speakers surrounding the spectators.

The event will begin after opening concert, approximately at 8:30 pm.
