Borealis collaborates with the MULTI concert series to commission new works for multi-channel speaker setup, giving new musicians, composers and sound artists the opportunity to express themselves using spatial sound.

Skjermbilde_2017-02-16_kl

Facing us on stage: a musician. He plays electronica. Works his machines like a hacker. But we can see him much better on screen. There, reality is different, and constantly changing.

The performance is co-produced by BEK, with BIT Teatergarasjen. A version was also shown at Oktoberdans 2016.
