Substrata seeks to explore varying perspectives of scale though the use of sound, composition and visuals - an international showcase featuring accomplished artists working in the cutting edge where structural abstraction meets physical dynamics.
By creating compositional spaces dealing with a sense of mass, along with openness of structure, the perspective of scale and the listener's place in relation is shifted to allow for greater a sense of 'place' beyond the environ of the performance in the interplay of the moment and physics of the larger world.
Wherein the most minute of gestures are made significant, or massive planes of perspective become revealed, as dynamic interplay builds these spaces that are as much acoustically sensed, as perceived in the mind's eye.
Each showcase features distinctly different takes of the potency of this kind of minimalism, varying between weighty combinations of bass and tonalities used to sculpt out atmospheric ambiance, or powerful dynamic structures made up of the subtlest filigree of sonic building materials.
As the name “substrata” implies, it is about subtle aesthetics that go beneath the surface and into deeper aural territories.
