Jonathan Nangle – Trip the Light Fantastic

Trip the Light Fantastic is a solar activated, generative sound installation. Solar panels on each of the 'bells' gather light which is then converted to energy and stored. Once a certain threshold point has been reached this energy is all released driving a motor which causes the hammer to strike the bell. The piece relies entirely on the natural ambient light to create an ever shifting soundscape.

Trip the Light Fantastic was commissioned by the Contemporary Music Centre for Culture Night 2011.
