An immersive, multi-speaker work that couples sound with light to reshape the terrain of the gallery space. Delicate layers of noise and silence disperse, forming micro and macro sonic spaces that merge and bleed into each other to make a constantly shifting and expanding sound world.
A live, improvised performance will feature on the opening night.
