Fluorophone, a project by Speak Percussion in close relationship with the involved composers, creates a kaleidoscopic sound world in which the central instruments radiate, flicker, glow and burn. Analogue and digital fluorescent lights, the naked flame, strobe lights and custom-built LED discs are combined with percussion to create a program in which the music and lighting design are one and the same. Fluorophone moves between noise, theatrical music and virtuosic instrumentalism, in a synesthetic display of light and sound. For the Darmstadt premiere of this project Juliana Hodkinson created a new piece as a commission of the Summer Course.
