“Mechanical Ballet” is a robotic installation that emphasizes the hidden soul in apparently inanimate objects. A symphonic concert and mechanical ballet of motorized lights. In a dynamic and rhythmic crescendo engaging, hidden lines of light and sound are revealed, stripped of their protective covers the motorized lights are amplified by the use of high precision microphones, which will make the “voice” of the objects audible. Synchronized in single movements or in choir, the robotic choir will give to the public a real mechanical orchestra. Symphony of detail, revelation of the microscopic, rhythmic management of the chaos, for a complex staging that takes a life of its own when human support is no longer necessary.
Founded in 2009 by Fabio di Salvo and Bernardo Vercelli.
The research of Quiet ensemble goes through the observation of balance between chaos and control, nature and technology, creating subjects that merge those elements, elements that take form from the relation between organic and artificial subjects, focusing on insignificant and wonderful elements, like the movement of a fly or the sound of trees.
