KWADRATUR #3 / CUBE

In Cube the final part of the triptych Kwadratur, sound, light and architecture become interwoven. Music deliberately plays on the perception of time and space as something purely sensory. The listener follows an auditory route and is alternately the observer and the observed. The whole building reveals its secrets and every part of it shall be thoroughly redefined.

press

“BL!NDMAN strips contemporary music of its holy seriousness and invites the audience to an adventure. [...] During this experiment, the weirdest sounds constantly follow you. You leave the building with freshly washed ears.” – Geert van der Speeten, deStandaard (10.02.2012)

“BL!NDMAN leads the Way” – Giorgio Valentino, The Bulletin (09.03.2012)
