Ezra Masch - Volumes

Volumes is, as best can be described, an art installation. The room is filled with light poles that are triggered by a live drummer. The lights start and the center of the room. The louder the drummer plays, the more light sources illuminate outwards from the center. The poles consist of 3 different areas which illuminate based on the frequency of the drum being played. Low to high respectively.
My first performance was mainly just "drum shit" and some basic thoughts about how the light system works.
This video is a snipped from my 2nd performance where I started to really understand the need for dynamics and space so that I wasn't just playing in a "well lit room".
