Outlands Tour 6: Ensō Sone

8pm, 12 Nov 2019

An original audio-visual collaboration between Japanese psych band @qujaku_jpn and UK visual artists @impatv.

Developed during a residency in Japan in June 2019, this new production explores ideas of duality. Sound triggers light that in turn creates form via an amalgam of heavy, rhythmic ambience combined with visual projections, lighting and stage design. The resulting union will unfurl as an expansive spectacle to stimulate the senses. Special guests @group_a_band open each night of the tour with a spectacular new AV set.

Ensō – a circular symbol hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. Sone – a unit of loudness; how loud a sound is perceived. Ensō Sone expresses a freedom to create loudness, which marks the starting point for this exciting new collaboration. Further ideas from Japanese Zen practice; of oneness, natural opposites and equilibrium, the spirit of harmonious cooperation, the visible and the invisible, absolute fullness in emptiness, simplicity, completeness, and endlessness are explored.
