Robin Fox's laser show added to Robert Henke at Barbican

Robin Fox's newest laser show has been added to July's Barbican event, headlined by Robert Henke. Henke will be performing Lumiere, a project where he "teaches lasers to dance" – three powerful white lasers which draw rapid succession of shapes, the data used to draw the shapes converted into audio on the spot. Fox will be performing with smoke and strobes and three laser projectors: red, green and blue, where the electrical signal is converted simultaneously into light and sound.

The audio visual performances take place at London Barbican on 19 July. Watch a video of Fox's RGB show below.
