Kim Cascone: “Dark Stations”
“Dark Stations” is a forty-two minute work utilizing Schumann resonances, Spricom frequencies, binaural and monaural beat frequencies and spatial effects to induce an altered state in the listener. The event's structure is derived from the Fibonacci series.
The audience is seated in a darkened room surrounded by a triangular array of speakers, in the middle is a subwoofer which completes a 3.1 multi-speaker configuration. The audience sits in the center of the triangle and is asked to meditate during the event.
“Dark Stations” is an acoustic mirror, a reflecting pool bringing the audience's unconscious to the surface through the technique of entrainment, allowing them to project onto the sonic gauze. “Dark Stations” could be likened to a scrying mirror into which the viewers unconscious is projected then reflected back to them.

Louis Laurain:
While developing his own personal and original language on his instrument, Louis Laurain researched, through different collaborations, an intuitive and spontaneous approach to music. His interest is essentially in different forms of improvised music for various formations,ranging from solo to orchestral.
His work is focussed principally on two topics. Firstly an acoustic approach to instruments through research on sounds and sound effects in relation to the space in which they are produced. Secondly work on the amplification of instruments (“close miking”) with the aim of creating the illusion of an electric or electronic “machine instrument”.
