Music and the visual arts are both temporal and spatial arts. My artistic research focuses on the use of light as a medium and in this respect my interests are both spatial and temporal and revolve around phenomenological questions related to the perception of volume and space, but also to the problems of how temporal sequences may be arranged and written into a score. After a short presentation of my artistic production and of my theoretical (and phenomenological) interests, I will try to explain and show how and why musical software is better designed for my light installations, especially because they presuppose the activity of autonomous composition in time.
