An Immersive Sonic Art Performance and Installation

Colony consists of up to seven internally lit, air filled spheres ranging in size from 2 – 3.5 meters, that emit an otherworldly 20-minute sonic composition. These large tactile, sonic sculptures allow the audience to experience the physicality of sound through listening, touching, and hugging.

This visually arresting and aurally entrancing work transforms the environment into an alien landscape and through light and sound, they briefly stir into life before ebbing away. Colony has been created for both indoor and outdoor spaces. Performances can cater for audiences of up to 250 or more. As an accessible, immersive and visceral work, Colony will appeal to new audiences as well as contemporary music enthusiasts, fitting in to town centres, festivals, galleries and performance spaces.
