BLOOM: A JUNIOR RECITAL
by Kayla Reagan
Conceived and Composed by Kayla Reagan
bloom: a junior recital was a sound installation devised by Kayla Reagan as her junior recital as part of Oberlin Conservatory's Technology in Music and Related Arts (TIMARA) program. I designed the lights for this installation, which took place in an old, unused locker room shower. Kayla composed an hour and a half of ambient drone music that I based my lighting design on. There were also projections of water being shot onto a tinsel curtain that audience members had to walk through to access the showers. Kayla's intention with this installation was to create an environment that felt like a "womb of sound and color". The lighting cues are slow and subtle, matching the changes in the music.
