The Lia Rumma Gallery in Milan will inaugurate the first exhibition in Italy by Granular Synthesis on March 5.
Granular Synthesis will present a completely new project at Milan entitled: “LUX”. The gallery space will be transformed into a claustrophobic and obsessive cavern. The images, which are entirely abstract and lack any kind of narrative intention, follow on from each other by means of an alienating sequence of electromagnetic waves while the vibrations produced by the software generate sounds that are both primordial and technological.
Granular Synthesis is a radical work which uses video and digital prints – the latter presented for the first time in Italy for this exhibition and produced separately by Kurt Hentschläger and Ulf Langheinrich – to release new and hitherto unexplored source energy. The machine, which has finally become autonomous, invites Mankind to form part of the technological universe that Mankind itself has created in order to teach it to decipher perceptions. The language of visual arts thus marks a further step forward: technology can recount its own existence by means of a romantic and sentimental confession made to its ancient creator.
