Laser Show

Robin Fox

Robin Fox’s laser show describes, in three-dimensional visual space, the geometry of sound. Enveloping the audience in synchronous sound and light information, the performance is designed to resemble a synaesthetic experience where what you hear is also what you see. The same electricity generated to move the speaker cones is sent simultaneously to high-speed motors that deflect the laser light on an x/y axis converting sonic vibration into light movement.

The laser-based performance is an extension of previous work undertaken using Cathode Ray Oscilloscopes to create audio-visual equivalence. These are documented on the DVD backscatter. Documentation of the laser performance is incredibly difficult, it really has to be experienced and filmed versions have proven to be inadequate for promotional purposes. Recent performances have taken place across Australia, Japan and Europe.
