Sonica Nearer Future Live

Sat 28 October 2017

Nearer Future

”I could have watched it all night” The Cusp (UK)

For Sonica 2017, Oregon-born, Glasgow-based Heather Lander has collaborated with sonic artist Robert Bentall (UK) to investigate the ways in which we might retain a sense of reality in a world where technology offers ever more opportunities for immersion in the virtual. Bentall’s ambient work Telian – played on the nyckelharpa, a traditional Swedish string instrument – is the live soundtrack for Lander’s visual composition. Symmetrical webs and waves of light rise upward, sculpted and spun into ethereal three-dimensional structures, building an extraordinary crystalline cathedral of light. Lander’s translucent virtual reality shows us where technology has taken us – and asks us to question where we may go next.

“So simple and amazingly effective” Professor Richard Wiseman

A Cryptic commission for Sonica 2017 in association with Cove Park.
