A Sound Installation for Play/Ground!

While our live performances have worked in linear time,
in this six-speaker surround environment, time is collapsed:
multiple fragments of material are heard simultaneously,
moving and changing to draw out powerful connections in the music.

Sounding Spaces ©2021 (excerpt reduced to stereo) 15 min. total

An immersive six-speaker sound installation that embodies musical resonances across time, geography, and genre.

— conceptualized by Senso di Voce & created from earlier recordings and mixed for six speakers by Esin Gunduz.

New Video Release!

Enjoy our summer 2018 performance:
As Above So Below,
recorded live at Silo City, Buffalo NY.

Our work is about resonances, physical and metaphorical.

Throughout our interpretations of early music from Western and non-Western traditions, we illuminate connections of timbre, gesture, sensation, and embodied emotional impact in order to bridge apparent divides of history and geography.

This video was filmed and edited by Megan Metté & multi-channel audio was recorded and mixed by Henry Birdsey.

“There is a sense after experiencing their work,
that you have seen something special, even magical.”
