ABOUT SONIC CINEMA
To visit Sonic Cinema is to enter a liminal zone - a ‘space of possibles’ where Spatial Sound fundamentally enhances and alters the ways stories are told and experienced.
A pure sonic experience, set in complete darkness - the Sonic Film is a film that the audience inhabits and experiences with their whole body. Uninhibited by the visual sense with its defined boundaries, this new medium enhances one's physiological experience, vastly expanding possibilities for narrative creation and embodiment.
Before each session you will be able to experience a Recalibration by Monom Studios to tune in your senses. This moment will serve to sharpen our attention and in particular our ability to listen more deeply, to listen with the whole body.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Croatian Amor is the solo alias of Loke Rahbek. He realizes a distinct and brilliant intimacy about the bracing pace and chronicles of the contemporary world. Hailing from Copenhagen, Rahbek operates the label Posh Isolation, a place of incubation for many artists from across Scandinavian experimental music, including many of his own collaborators. As Croatian Amor, Rahbek’s most crucial and imaginative account is laid bare.
Often using a mesh of real events and places as a platform for a largely dreamlike play, Croatian Amor composes with pop artefacts of the circuits that interlace our lives. Sometimes speaking in loneliness, though often telling of trysts, Croatian Amor presents a longing for indeterminate sensation. Employing a medley of diffuse electronic music traditions, fantastical synthetic worlds are evoked to make this world just a little more habitable.
Ruby Singh's Vox.Infold is an a cappella offering, composed and (remarkably) recorded at a time when singing together was something that could kill us. Against the backdrop of the covid 19 pandemic and amidst potent social unrest, this powerhouse vocal ensemble of Indigenous, Inuit, Black and South Asian voices, reimagined how to sing together. The resulting work is so much more than a convergence of diverse vocal traditions but a complex rendering of what’s possible when we can hold each other's humanity. The album dives into a full bodied, resonant and sensuous expression housed in polyrhythm, lush harmonies, mimicry, and polyphonic poetry. The resulting sonic landscape encompasses a non-linear journey in which we may find and care for each other. Evoking loneliness, joy, the mysterious and supernatural, Vox.Infold brings together musical luminaries, Dawn Pemberton, Inuksuk Mackay and Tiffany Ayalik of PIQSIQ, Russell Wallace, Tiffany Moses, Shamik Bilgi and Ruby Singh. They remind us that the human voice is an adaptation of the metabolic activity most crucial to our existence – breathing. This is how the atmosphere enters our beings and how we know we are intimately connected to our world.
What is SPATIAL sound? Spatial sound is a term to describe the way we have evolved to perceive space through sound - it refers to the way we hear sound naturally in the world around us, in all its complexity and depth. From above, below, around us, through and within us. The perfect spatial sound experience is the one we experience every day. When we refer to spatial sound technology, this is technology that aims to recreate this effect.
We advise coming 10 prior to the start of the sessions to enjoy a Recalibration by Monom Studios
For a better experience we recommend having cell phones turned off as light can distract from the experience.
If you need to leave the room in the middle of the session, please do so in silence.
