The Composition Engine
An unofficial Nuit Blanche installation. From sunset until sunrise the chapel will be the site of a “composition engine” – teams of singers, musicians, and readers will be stationed around the space, to be started, stopped, and re-started by members of the audience using on/off switches. The audience’s choices will create a randomized tapestry of harmonious sound, shifting continuously over the course of the night, just as patterns of light shift around the chapel’s austere stone surfaces, natural light giving way to candle-light, followed by the first light of dawn. Curated by Maggie Helwig and Peter Drobac.
