Co-Presented by MONOM and MIRA Festival, Sta/g-mos is an accumulation of research done by Sound Artist Kate De Lorme during her two months as an Artist in Residence at the Spatial Sound Institute in Budapest, Hungary.
An exploration in aligning physical and metaphysical bodies, this work looks to explore sound’s fundamental connection to the body. The artist’s interest was piqued through researching the ancient practice of resonant sound healing, and how it has resurfaced throughout history in many different and globally diverse forms.
Using the 4DSOUND spatial sound system, surrealistic soundscapes and harmonizing frequencies work with the listener’s body to manifest tactile sound. Sta/g-mos is a guided meditation and immersive four dimensional audio journey - a truly unique and profound experience.
