The invisible atmosphere was thus the assumed intermediary in all communication, a zone of subtle influences crossing, mingling, and metamorphosing. The progressive forgetting of the air— the loss of the invisible richness of the present—has been accompanied by a concomitant internalisation of human awareness.
CULTURAL ECOLOGIST DAVID ABRAM, THE SPELL OF THE SENSUOUS
Atmospherics is a synesthetic performance, immersive audio experience, and educational tour featuring three musicians, spoken word narrative, dynamic visuals, architectonic transitions, and interactive elements for the audience. Lasting 45 minutes, the piece can be performed both in large concert halls and in more intimate or unconventional venues as a traveling performance. The experience was collaboratively developed by Elias Faingersh, Jenny Filipetti, Sofia William Åsenlöf, and Imre Zsibrik. Visuals relate to notions of time, sound, memory, creation, and decay, and participants become part of the music throughout the experience: invoking thunderstorms, recording their own voices and sound effects, and moving around the environment.
