ARESTA is a sculptural sound installation, turning an ensemble of saxophones into autonomous entities. The music is generated by a computer using algoriyhmic composition and a neuronal network, played through the instruments and synchronized with several LEDs placed inside their bodies. The piece turns into a performative installation questioning the need for a human body on stage and the potential obsolescence of the human performer.
