Dimitris Patsaros & Anastasia Douka /
Imagine a musical performance made of sounds reminiscent of the first sound environment of a baby. Just as any baby develops a different way of listening while growing up, so is this composition transformed through repeated musical themes, synthesiser sounds, children’s instruments and landscape recordings in an ambient and electronic mode. Together with the sound, the senses of the young audience are also aroused by visual stimuli and colour happenings. The children experience a specially arranged sensory environment, whose main feature is light and its refraction through paper. A live installation that works as an electronic planetarium, a cosy space-environment-planet of calmness, which then develops into an observation and exploration area for parents and infants.
