Welcome to Volcano, a sonic experience by Nina Danon and Comakid, in collaboration with cellist Lily Hope.
The first iteration of Volcano, for loudspeakers and vibrating floor, will be presented on the 21/01/2023 at the Attenborough Arts Centre, as part of the Aural Diversity Workshop 5.
Volcano takes the audience on a multi-sensory journey to the centre of the Earth. Inspired by the magnificent volcanic cavern Algar do Carvão in the Azores, the piece is constructed to musically evoke the shapes, colours, textures and tactile sensations experienced when descending into this ancient volcano, bringing to life the rich geological history of the island of Terceira.
