photovoltaic panels, ebows, electric guitar, light sources
Double Partial Eclipse is a live performance project, where handheld photovoltaic panels harvest energy from available light sources – lightbulbs, the sun, strobe lights, video projectors, etc. – that power ebows (small electronic string-driving devices) on electric guitars. The work is expandable in terms of the number of panels and instruments involved and also the number and variety of light sources, and can be performed indoors or out (weather permitting, of course).Outposts, curated by Brendan Walls for Dark Mofo, Hobart, Tas., June 2017.
