During a residency hosted by The Kitchen at Queenslab, Peruvian composer, performer, and software developer Efraín Rozas will create a new sound installation titled Still which asks what we can achieve if we acknowledge the realities of cyclical, pendular, parallel, static, and virtual time. Still aims to generate a synesthetic experience of silence in which the act of listening is not isolated from other senses. With lighting design by Madeline Best.
Curated by Lumi Tan.
