In 2020 the ArsElectronica program took place all over the world. There were conferences, exhibitions, performances and concerts. These all took place locally but taken together they created a festival on the net to be enjoyed worldwide. One of the art performances was the UVTOWER.

The UVTOWER, pictured above, is a musical instrument. It is made with lasers and mirrors. Adding and removing mirrors changes the beat. Andrea Guidi and Giacomo Lepri use these lasers and mirrors to configure alternative ways for composing music. In doing so they reflect on the notion of growth in an accelerated age. The system collapses and starts anew. Changing the setting of the mirrors speeds up this process or slows it down.
