Hotel Fata Morgana (2019)
vimeo.com/370541267

YouTube video collage with live score for synthesizers, samplers, tape, and contact microphone.

Hotel Fata Morgana explores the notion of music-as-mirage. The piece uses weird and wobbly textures, spectral shimmers, microtonal melodies, and slow-oscillating drones to approximate, musically, the optics of refraction. A four-part video series mirrors these transformations by reworking found YouTube footage — obscure documentaries, amateur meteorology, and news coverage — into new, hallucinatory geometries and nested surfaces. A study in distorted sonic realities, Hotel Fata Morgana interrogates the seductiveness of false horizons and fairy-tale architectures.
