AquaSonic

Sonica 2017

Denmark’s Between Music present an otherworldly, underwater spectacular. Working with divers, scientists and instrument-makers to investigate the ways in which science and art can meet and influence one another, Between Music have developed compositions for five musicians submerged in vast tanks of water that glow in the darkened gallery. With performers both singing beneath the surface with specially developed vocal techniques and playing instruments custom-designed for use underwater – including adapted strings and percussion – AquaSonic melds whale song and chamber music to produce a spectacle that’s dreamlike, transporting and utterly original.
