Lumina Sound Installation @ Technosonics Festival

  • Charlottesville, VA (map)


Inspired by the form and construction process of Lumina, the composed soundscape is a sonic ecosystem of semi-artificial sound creatures in an environment of rich, slowly evolving tones. The work is played back over six speakers attached to the structure's surface, engulfing listeners in immersive sound that traces the curves and delineates the boundaries of the structure while they stand beneath it.

The Lumina installation was created by students of the University of Virginia School of Architecture led by Professor Michael Beaman, Fabrication Facilities manager Melissa Goldman and guest designer Andrew Kudless. It’s full form was originally fully installed for the Bicentennial celebration in October 2017.
