UVTOWER
Andrea Guidi - IT
Giacomo Lepri - IT


UVTOWER is a musical sequencer made of lasers [1] and mirrors which explores rhythm in electronic music as the result of structural relationships [2].

The flow of the rhythm is traced in a circle by a laser beam situated at the top of a tower. Mirrors mark the beats at different positions around the circle. Adding and removing mirrors leads to the composition and performance of physical and musical structures. The project challenges the notions of musical time and music sequencers by configuring alternative ways to compose and perform patterns [3].
