Conceived in 2006 by curators Alexis Bhagat and Lauren Rosati, ((audience)): Cinema for the Ear is an unprecedented project that explores the notion of cinema as 21st century concert hall. The centerpiece of ((audience)) is a program of 5.1 surround sound works by international artists intended for presentation in movie theaters as “cinema in the dark” – audio only, without visual accompaniment. The evening's selected works, all related to the theme of “Horror,” will be screened in a completely dark cinema environment without visual accompaniment.
Please note: This is a screened program; musicians will not be performing live.
