This Fringe, Damian Frey invites you to come to Happy’s back room, enter a breathing, living electronic space made of light and sound, and be taken somewhere else.

Sounds Like Light, Lights Like Sound is a reactive installation built from sound and light, designed as a playable world-creating light and sound instrument with a mind of its own.

“I’m inspired by the feel of computer games like Half-Life, System Shock 2, and Doom,” said Frey. “These games create awesome emotional effect, using sound and light to build an intense atmosphere.”

Sounds Like Light, Lights Like Sound draws on this power of raw sound, light, and darkness to create emotion, transporting visitors to otherworldly realms.

What makes it different from other installations is that it is reactive. Without the input of the visitor, it’s just a room, static and unchanging. But step into it and it comes to life.

“People will enter this space and they will feel like they’re taking themselves somewhere else,” said Frey. “You are in control – most of the time – but just where you end up will never be entirely certain. Imagine moving through a darkened labyrinth with walls that keep on shifting, inhabited by ghosts, phantoms, and portals to other places – that’s what it’s like.”

Frey has a website at http://www.frey.co.nz where anyone interested can observe the progress and construction of Sounds Like Light, Lights Like Sound. He also has a myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/freyed .
