SIGMASIX & Mimetic
Vertical Surround

Vertical Surround is a music and visual installation that immerges the visitors in a volumetric experience, pushing their limits of perception. The music is transmitted via an octophony (4 times stereo, from the ceiling to the ground) sound system and the light takes shape in the whole space. The visitor enters an empty space and, while wandering around, experiences the sound and light surrounds them. The intensity of the luminosity and the power of the music transport the visitor to new places, sometimes lost in the dark and very discreet sounds, sometimes disoriented by bright strobes and strong basses.
