XFRMR at Edinburgh Festival
22 August 2017 until 26 August 2017
The Leith Volcano
In XFRMR, Robbie Thomson harnesses the power of the Tesla coil, the 19th century invention that first made electricity visible. Thomson’s musical accompaniment – a soundtrack played on laptop and synthesiser, by turns melodic and soothing, then pulsing, skittering and searing – strikes visuals from the coil, sending light signals flaring through the Faraday cage that contains it. The grid of the cage displays ever-changing geometries, as light seems to fuse with sound to make synaesthetic patterns, in a unique sensory phenomenon.
