SONPENDULAR is an audiovisual concert with immersive projection mapping by artists Sergio Mora-Diaz, Marco Martinez and Andrea Gana, which takes place inside the Church of El Carmen Bajo de San Rafael in Independencia, Santiago, Chile. The temporary intervention makes use of projecion mapping, lighting and live music to reactivate and resignify this religious heritage building, in disuse since 1958.
The project is an aesthetic research about time and space, which invites the viewer to a ritual of light and sound, rich in geometric patterns and audio in real time. The sound consists of ambient electronic music, mixing sounds from field recordings and original compositions performed using Ableton Live and analog synthesizers.
The visuals display geometric and generative patterns designed in real time using Madmapper, Modul8 and TouchDesigner, seeking to enhance the architectural elements of the building. These compositions refer to cyclic patterns and pendular movement, generating intense immersive atmospheric states.
The artists behind Sonpendular are Andrea Gana in live music, along with Sergio Mora-Diaz and Marco Martinez in the real-time creation of visuals and immersive projection mapping, produced by Delight Lab and Chincol Producciones. The piece was first performed in July 2018 and later in January 2019 with the collaboration of guest musicians Tan Levine and Mariana Olivares, adding gongs and percussion to the atmosphere proposed by the original piece.
