Infinite Lives (UK Premiere)

  • 26 — 28 October 2017

A Cryptic commission for Sonica 2017 in partnership with the Grand Theatre, Groningen

The nature of consciousness has long fascinated and frustrated artists as much as scientists, from the science-fiction of Philip K Dick to the psychiatric work of RD Laing, and today’s pioneering researchers into artificial minds. In Infinite Lives, Glasgow-based Robbie Thomson performs a kind of live lab experiment, studying bacteria only visible under extreme magnification. These tiny entities are alive, but are they – could they ever be – conscious? Surrounded by weird and fantastical organisms and robotic devices, Thomson’s experiments are transformed into projections which react both to a live electronic soundtrack and to his investigations into the vanishingly tiny complexities of our world and the limits of human consciousness. Running time: 45 minutes

AquaSonic (UK Premiere)

  • 26 — 28 October 2017

Denmark’s Between Music present an otherworldly, underwater spectacular. Working with divers, scientists and instrument-makers to investigate the ways in which science and art can meet and influence one another, Between Music have developed compositions for five musicians submerged in vast tanks of water that glow in the darkened space. With performers both singing beneath the surface with specially developed vocal techniques and playing instruments custom-designed for use underwater – including adapted strings and percussion – AquaSonic melds whale song and chamber music to produce a spectacle that’s dreamlike, transporting and utterly original. Running time: 55 minutes
