Compose Your Own Symphony of Light and Sound

Press Release – Elephant Publicity

COMPOSE YOUR OWN SYMPHONY OF LIGHT AND SOUND IN AOTEA SQUARE

Auckland Live in association with Thomas Press presents
LIGHTBELLS

Friday 14 – Saturday 29 April
Aotea Square, Auckland.

A brand new interactive light and sound experience, Lightbells will tower above Aotea Square these school holidays, lighting up the landscape with a joyful cacophony of bell tones and visual delight.

The six-metre high sculpture by Auckland-based composer and sound designer Thomas Press, is designed to literally light up when its ropes are pulled and its bells are illuminated and ring out in a unique symphony of light and sound.

Tuned to a musical scale with eight different pitches, the bells compliment the more traditional tolling of the nearby Auckland Town Hall clock tower bell, and create a unique soundscape across the Aotea Arts Quarter for all to enjoy.

At night, the sculpture really comes into its own, shining brightly in response to hands-on engagement from visitors and the curious. Minimalist in form, but invitingly tactile and user-friendly in function, Lightbells is a satisfying and stunning school holiday experience for all ages.

About the artist:
Thomas Press was the winner of the People’s Choice Best Music Award at the 2014 Auckland Theatre Awards, and is a five-time Chapman Tripp Theatre Award nominee for Sound Design of the Year. Lightbells is his first work for Auckland Live.
