On 25, 26 and 27 february 2011 REDEAR Festival in Rotterdam will present the multi-channel light and sound system FORNAX. Every hour, 4 electronic compositions by Paulo Santiago, René Uijlenhoet and Jan-Bas Bollen will be running continuously in front of the entrances of the Doelen Concert Hall on Kruisplein.
FORNAX is a multi-channel sound sytem designed by Bollen and STEIM’s Byungjun Kwon. The system projects audio from 18 discrete sources (wireless network MP3 players) via 36 loudspeakers and audio controlled multi-coloured light from 18 LED lamps. Both the sound and light can be pre-composed so that a true synthesis between the visual and sonic can be obtained.
