Ruby Singh (Canada)
Here’s a chance to experience sound as touch, sound as atmosphere, sound as a wondrous, enveloping presence. Drawing on both traditional and emergent musical practices, this IBPOC ensemble has created rich, powerfully expressive compositions; in their sheer range, the vocals evoke human existence in all its wondrous variety.
Loneliness and joy, the mysterious and the supernatural—they’re all here, conveyed through 4DSOUND technology, vibroacoustic floor panels, and speakers placed across the ceiling. The sense of immersion is total, and the vibrations are so intense that they cross into the realm of touch—you feel the sound as well as hear it. Get a taste of Vox.Infold here.
