SYNOPSIS

Every sound that surrounds us, every note, which is played is oscillation. Each color and structure that we see is also a vibration. They all obey similar laws.
Where do the combination of these oscillations of color, structure and music lead us?

This question that composer Alexander Scriabin asked in the early twentieth century are revisited by these artists today.


Based on Scriabin's orchestral work "Promethee" (Le Poeme du feu; op. 60) and the myth of Prometheus, Philippe Wozniak collaborates with musicians and visual artists to create a contemporary sound, music and moving light installation
