Chorus - Ray Lee

Chorus is a monumental and impressive installation of kinetic sound sculptures.

Towering above the audience is a series of giant metal tripods supporting rotating arms. At the end of each arm, loudspeakers emit precisely tuned musical pitches creating a pulsating, harmonic drone, singing out a hypnotic siren call to all those present. Red lights at the end of the arms create the effect of a whirling swarm of fireflies, or of planets in motion, like mesmerising orbits of colour. These intersecting lights trace rings above the heads of the audience, while the combined chorus of the spinning speakers creates a cohesive harmonious whole, “a sticky flux” that is both uplifting and transfixing.

On 19 September, Chorus will be performed on the Great Courtyard of the Royal Castle of Warsaw as an outdoor concert. This version was prepared especially for Warsaw Autumn.
