Worlds of light and colour immerse the space, spherical sounds flood the room, bodies pulsate propelled by thick beats. Two dancers, a sound artist and a composer create an immersive experience in which sound, light, colour and dance merge into an aesthetic of poetic beauty. The current artistic project is a performance featuring live sound, dance, video projections and live streaming. Core to the production is sound-to-colour synaesthesia, in which music evokes colours and shapes. The performance addresses various aspects of synesthesia: the richness and beauty of synaesthetic experiences, but also the associated hypersensitivity and potential overstimulation that often accompanies synaesthesia. The artists of Sound & Colour Production are synaesthetes and non-synaesthetes. The individual perceptions influence the work already in the collaborative creation process. Sound & Colour Production creates a tangible resonance in the audience and provides an immersive, sensory experience.
