ATOM / Henke & Bauder

ATOM_photo_Justine Lera_small01Destello. Zumbido. Silencio. Sesenta y cuatro globos blancos flotando, rellenos de helio. Cientos de personas sentadas en el piso, alrededor de la instalación sonora que Robert Henke y Christopher Bauder idearon hacia el año de 2008 y que utiliza la más novedosa tecnología de reproducción musical en comunión perfecta con un curatorial espectáculo de luces.

El nombre de la pieza es ATOM, sigla deliberada, como “átomo”, pues la pieza pretende emular las reacciones eléctricas, el movimiento relampagueante, que dichas partículas experimentan en la conformación de una molécula compleja. Como una gigantesca reproducción interactiva del modelo de Bohr.

En la instalación los globos funcionan como focos enloquecidos, bombillas artificiales que se mueven, se encienden y se apagan en fracciones de segundo guiadas por el estímulo de la música. Música que es ritmo. Ritmo generado por computadora que suena a martilleo, a piano, a canto de cigarra.

El montaje engloba –literalmente– numerosas disciplinas artísticas y es en sí mismo arte, o pretensión de arte, una suerte de escultura móvil, lumínica y sonora. En todo caso, ejemplo de creatividad. Es por ello que la pieza ha sido presentada en el Festival Internacional de Creatividad Digital y Música Electrónica, con sede en las ciudades canadienses de Quebec y Montreal, y el cual tiene en la Ciudad de México un espacio a la manera de foro alterno.

Henke, músico y miembro fundador de la agrupación Monolake, se hizo mundialmente famoso por participar en la creación del software Ableton, uno de los más avanzados software para la edición de audio que incluye una extensa librería de cualquier tipo de sonidos.

Bauder, por su parte, es un reconocido diseñador informático especialista en soportes multimedia. Entre sus trabajos se encuentran proyectos como “Crystal Chandeliere”, “Polygon Playground”, “Lichtgrenze” y “Midigun”, este último, un sintetizador completamente funcional construido con la forma de una arma de fuego (de ahí el nombre: “midi”, siglas en inglés para Interfaz Digital de Instrumentos Musicales, y “gun”, literalmente, arma de fuego).

Esta semana la pieza ATOM se presentó cuatro ocasiones en tierra mexicana, tres como parte del Festival Internacional Cervantino, en la capital guanajuatense, y una, anoche, en El Plaza Condesa como parte de la serie A/VISION del festival MUTEK MX 2011 en la Ciudad de México.
