Première installatie Luke Deane tijdens Grachtenfestival Weekend


Melt Me Down (or The Campaign To Abolish Sonic Weapons) is een installatie van componist Luke Deane. Met zijn fascinatie voor sonische wapens vraagt hij aandacht voor de LRAD, de Long Range Acoustic Device. Een akoestische aanval van dit controversiële apparaat heeft verstrekkende gevolgen voor mens en maatschappij.

De installatie is tijdens het Grachtenfestival in augustus te bekijken en ervaren. Daarnaast brengen Luke Deane en violiste Christine Cornwell de installatie tot leven brengen met korte optredens.

"These days sound pollution is everywhere, it's so hard to catch a break from the din. But even worse than this, the military and government are developing weapons that exploit and harm our most delicate senses, our ears. As a composer, who's entire life comes from sound and silence, I am compelled to protect your ears from harm. Let me show you your ears as the profoundly sensitive tools that they are and why we must actively work together to look after them." Luke Deane

Tijdens het Grachtenfestival Weekend beleeft de installatie haar première in de NedPhO Koepel.
