This performance is the collaboration between “New Music Syntax” by Kyoka, and “Rockforms” by Ali M. Demirel. “New Music Syntax”, is ongoing project of Kyoka, combining music theory along with neuroscience to shed light on the interactions between sound and human. Rockforms series is coastal geography, the study of the dynamic interface between the ocean and the land. Demirel works with various rock formation he captured around the world and overlays them with liquid footage to simulate this phenomenon.
