Playing Magnetic Fields

In his performance Fields,  Martin Messier asserts to play with magnetic fields. What he did, in reality, was much more complex. Using a –probably pre-programmed sound base– he coordinated his performance by manipulating two “connections patches that offer many possibilities to connect many outputs to many inputs”. The two artifacts you see in the video below were moved around, connected through a variety of cables, plugged and unplugged, let loose…sound and light were coordinated accordingly to create quite a spectacular must see show. below an excerpt of this rather powerful performance.
