A multi-sensory headphone opera trip. Belgian mezzo-soprano Els Mondelaers and Dutch composer Dyane Donck combine their skills to create a unique performance where modern classical composition meets psychedelic pop. Silent disco-style, the audience don state-of-the-art binaural headphones to experience a unique 3D soundscape that’s both intimate and immersive – a massage for the ears!
“We were presented songs that were a mixture of Leonard Cohen’s melancholy and Laurie Anderson’s electronics, a sound that also included opera, layered harmony, live sampling, soundscapes and live footage of, for instance, a music box in binaural microphones. The shifts between the various soundscapes and genres appeared almost magical in our ears.” Seismograf
