1500 HUF
Trafó Passes are accepted
Where is that fine line between being awake and asleep? Can we dream together? Can sounds direct our dreams?

David Somló’s series of events explores the boundaries of listening in the plain, empty space of Trafó Studio. During this performance a live composition, utilizing simple elements and combining multichannel light and sound, will slowly unfold on the senses, creating an immersive, field recording-inspired environment that will envelope the listener. Thus, Listening Club will transcend the individual nature of those attending to create a collective experience.

Concept, sound, light: Somló Dávid

"The sound is expanding in the space, is becoming omnipresent, resonating from all places. Then, behind my closed eyes, the sound slowly materializes, gains its own matter, substance, volume. (...) Our sensation of space is changing, there are no walls or roof, we are floating in emptiness, far away from our everyday realities." Viktória Beličáková, kapcsolj.be blog
