About

Ten performers at ten musical stations work with the audience to create a long-form tapestry of meditative sounds and drones. Their music unfolds slowly over the course of the performance, complemented by ambient music performances to create an inverse nightclub – a space that is relaxing, transportive, and communal and blurs the lines between participant and audience.

The audience will be able to walk around the space creating their own ‘mix’ of the performance and come and go as they please over the course of the performance. Yoga mats and pillows will be provided so the audience and performers can lie down, relax and take in the immersive sounds. Together, we will attempt a drift from everyday life, to a space where time moves slowly and people can clear their minds from the minutia of the grind.

Curator's Note

"Brandon Hocura and Gary Abugan of the internationally acclaimed DJ duo Invisible City Soundsystem are no strangers to boundary pushing presentations of music. Explorers of the sonically obscure, they operate the renowned re-issue label Invisible City Editions, dredging up some of the most fascinating music to be found. The notion that they proposed of a durational new-age playground sounded too good to be true." - Adam Bradley and Andrew Pulsifer
