About WATER BRAIN
WATER BRAIN is a collaborative project that combines music and visuals to explore the rebuilding of societal harmony with the natural world. The performances use active deep listening to incorporate the pulse and melody of both urban and natural environments, creating a multimedia narrative that builds upon despondent surroundings to create a harmonious experience. The project emphasizes the importance of the often unnoticed layers that form the foundation of our society and warns of the potential consequences of their erosion.
