Aether

Musician, producer and scientist Max Cooper, in collaboration with design collective Architecture Social Club, open Sonica with a one-off immersive audiovisual work, Aether. For one night only, Tramway will be hung with thousands of dangling threads pulsing and glimmering with moving points of light. They form a glowing, constantly shifting three-dimensional matrix that responds in real time as Cooper’s mesmerising electronic soundtrack builds to a thrilling crescendo. Viewers can move around beneath the lattice of hanging lights to view the patterns from every angle as they form one moment a surreal swirling vortex, the next a series of interlocking geometric grids or a hail of heavenly meteorites.
