Support comes from the Cube's very own resident artist Vi.
A change from the norm. Vi will be trying out new experiments in audio performance by working with recorded sounds and live treatments processed by the information coming off those same sounds. Mixed with tiny amounts of tonal material and feedback, sounds will be arranged throughout the cinema space utilising the multi-speaker system. Vi would like to dedicate this performance to the newborn.
