As the astronomy room has been entered it is evident that something unique is going to happen. The comfortable seats are reclinable, because the entire performance requires the spectator to watch the rounded ceiling and specifically the projection of moving picture on it.
After a delicious introduction on constellations’ structure and position in the sky held by the Uni SA Astronomy Lecturer the performance is up to start.
The electroacoustic music composed by Darren Curtis and played with little percussion instruments by the artist Bradley Pitt is perfectly married with the moving pictures displayed on the ceiling. The Composer uses a frequencies relevator during the performance to capture what is necessary to be translated into sounds through a sequencer on his computer (Ableton). Plus other sounds like space frequencies and NASA recordings complete the soundtrack of the show.
Firmament is a performance where are also shown historical ancient civilizations, our remote past united to our consideration of what we think, we wish and we hope about the presence of life in outer space.
