Aresta (Concert performance)
Aresta is a concert for eight saxophones and one musician working on the concept of automatisation.
In Aresta, a saxophone octet no longer requires saxophonists. Each instrument hangs from a pyramid-shaped metal structure and acts as a resonating body for the loudspeaker it holds inside it. More than a hundred LEDs fixed in the holes of each instrument create a choreography of light moving in perfect synchronicity with the music.
Taking the form of a performative installation, the saxophones generate the illusion of organicness, of different timbres and of choreographed movement despite being completely inert and immobile. Aresta presents a constant dialogue between machine and musician, questioning whether machines can trigger emotions the same way a human can.
