TREMBLING sensing space

In the frame of a hugh car tunnel under construction underneath Amsterdam Central Station we realized a performative installation,
an experimental space created by vibrations of light and sound. The audience was taken on a journey though the seven colors of the spectrum, a spellbinding transformation from deep darkness into bright lightness.

'In the pitchdark, way under the ground, a long drone sounds best. For the first quarter of the installation-performance TREMBLING sensing space by director Lidy Six, you will hear the base tone slowly increasing in volume and power.
Finally you reach a deafening volume, so powerful that even the installation on witch the audience is seated starts to tremble. This sound produces an immediately physical reaction, a unique experience, as if the churning inner core of the earth is gradually getting closer'

'What started as an earthquake ended in a magnificent color palette. Far ends of the tunnel came alive slowly and embraced you like a lightworm. New York DJ/composer Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell bombed you with the most splended soundscapes.
Color and sound brings you in a very exclusive mindset.
