Dinner for Two, 2019. Live interactive performance, 1:30 minutes.
“Dinner for Two” is an intimate, outdoor experience in which one can watch the sunset while dining with a friend or lover. It is an interdisciplinary project that integrates audio, lights, and motion, lending itself for an interactive performance; the users take on the role as live performers and musicians, controlling audio and lighting with their movements. The experience begins when participants from each end of the table raise their wine glasses and say cheers. Their motions can generate, alter, transpose, and reverse samples of audio that relate to familiar sounds one would hear while dining, such as filling up a glass with water or the clinking of silverware. The sunset is a thematic element interwoven throughout the project. The work features a recording of the sun by NASA, which the students processed at different frequencies to achieve melody and harmony.
