Making Music in Space
Marc Marzenit will be one of the speakers at Sónar+D with The Zero-Gravity Band, a group formed by Albert Barqué and Marc himself. The Zero-Gravity Band is an immersive installation of light and sound 360º that aims to induce sensations of zero gravity and an exhibition of prototypes and instruments designed to create arts and music in conditions of zero gravity and ‘intellectualligent’ space.
In Boston, Nicole L’Huilier created the Telemetrón, an experimental musical instrument made to perform music (and explore poetic possibilities) in zero gravity conditions. In London and Barcelona, Albert Barqué and Marc Marzenit conceived The Zero-Gravity Band, a project that explores tools with which to create art in Space, without the restrictions of the physical laws imposed by planet Earth.
In this session, the three researchers and artists will explain their experience interpreting music in zero gravity conditions, how aerospace technology can be a field for artistic expression, and imagine possible futures outside Earth with their cultural implications beyond mere survival.
