The Net and the Self
"The Net and the Self is an interactive music and dance installation mirroring our networked society.
The audience enter in a room illuminated by UV blacklights where dancers and musicians interact through an amplified harp that has its strings connected with fluorescent fishing lines attached to the walls.
The installation is not a static, fixed piece of artwork, rather a constantly evolving experience that includes both the artists and the audience. In this way, we question the existing hierarchical dynamic, and what is art in general.
The artists that create this installation are : Pierre Emmanuel Mariaca (MFA3 in Composition and experimental sounds practices), Herry Kim (MFA1 in Arts), Dongpu Ling (MFA1 in Arts and technology), Brian Griffith (MFA1 in Composition and experimental sounds practices), Gabe Le Neveu (BFA1 in Composition and experimental sounds practices), Andrea Soto (BFA1 in Dance), Yunju Cho (BFA1 in Dance), Lena Martin (BFA1 in Dance) Anne LeBaron, and Ruoyi Shi (MFA1 in Arts).

This is a Unity-based video piece, inspired by Reich’s Pendulum Music, but with a microtonal tuning based on a 1-3-5-7 combination-product set. The fundamental of this tuning is an upper 2/1 partial of the Schumann resonance 7.83 Hz. This Schumann resonance is basically the resonant frequency of the Earth’s electromagnetic field.
