'Fields of Frequencies' is a spatial light- and sound installation generating a profound experience of pure colour. NY Composer / DJ Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell composes sound resonating the frequency of colours created through light by artist Lidy Six. The installation will continuously run during the opening hours of DROOG. Travelling the spectrum, light and sound are transforming the space into subtly moving fields of colour. This synergy has a magical effect, deep, precise and elusive. In a way it's also challenging the limits of human perception. The colours are created by LED lighting, which is especially able to make the frequencies of colors perceptible, interacting with the vibrating sounds heard through the Omniwave-system. This innovative virtual loudspeaker-system, developed by the Dutchman Leo de Klerk, allows the visitor to perceive a spatial sound with great depth from any position. Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell and Lidy Six are continuously exploring the interaction between the creation of sound and light. 'Fields of Frequencies' is their third major event. In 2009 Claussell and Six realized 'TREMBLING sensing space', an amazing performative installation in the car tunnel under construction underneath Amsterdam Central Station. During the development of her experiential theatre / location projects, Lidy Six discovered how powerful the sensorial, physical and mental workings are in the experience of the elementary - the space, the light, a colour, a tone, and their magical synergy. Her main focus is the creation of transformative spaces, right now by composing frequencies of colour, in an ongoing research in collaboration with multifaceted dance music producer Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell. Claussell: 'For as long as I can remember, as soon as I realized the first note of rhythm and melody, I visualize a multitude of different colours appearing as if they are attached to every note of a musical compostion.'
