Projection & Installation Design
This is an in-process multi-media installation based on the project Luys i Luso.
In 2015, internationally renowned jazz pianist Tigran Hamasyan and the Yerevan State Chamber Choir went on a musical pilgrimage to 100 churches around the world under the nameLuys i Luso (light after light). They performed Armenian Sacred music dating back to the 5th century, by composers such as Naregatsi, Mashtots & Komitas, reimagined & rearranged by Hamasyan.
Studio Ondé, in collaboration with filmmakers Emily Mkrtichianand Alex Igidbashian, reimagine the visual, sonic and sensory experience of these intimate performances into a immersive installation. Using projection and sound design, we transform historic spaces in Armenia, Munich and Los Angeles into living, breathing digital recreations of the Luys i Luso tour.
