III. Illusion

in cooperation with Christina Kubisch ;
the electromagnetic fields of the Las Vegas Strip resound in an orchestral manner.

Next to gambling, Las Vegas primarily brought electricity and light into the darkness of the Nevadan desert. Together with German composer Christina Kubisch, we have made audible what usually stays unrecognized for our ears : the electromagnetic fields related to the neon-signs, light emissons and LED thunderstorms. By using extensions for our ears the piece is built on different but existing sites of our urban reality. It is a symphony of electric smog. A compositional precise and intense arrangement of alternating current.
