INVISIBLE THROUGH BACH is an immersive multimedia art-work in which an architecture of motorized metal plates reflects light and music. A multi-perceptual concert which gives birth to a bio-technological organism.

The performance takes place in two separate spaces simultaneously: while in the main scene an immersive installation of metal plates vibrates, at the background a cellist plays an invisible homage to J.S. Bach.

The result is a dystopian experience, in which the classical heritage is entrusted with the role of memory. The rest is artifice of technological tools: industrial materials, motors, lights, codes, and techno-noise sounds. Elements of humanity, but also subjects of a growing dehumanization: the socio-cultural drift that brings out the scream of this work.

Presented for OGGIMUSICA and LuganoMusica, at the theatre LAC (Lugano - CH) on 19 March 2019, it is the result of a collaboration with cellist Giacomo Cardelli and visual artist Rajan Craveri, and it was supported by the Christoph Delz Foundation.
