Digital Empathy is a 30-minute event in which a sonic landscape is created directly from the interaction between the audience and performers. Selected audience members will be invited to act as our choir: wearing a MUSE version of the innovative ‘experience helmet’ designed by Aiste Noreikaite, their brainwaves will create part of the soundscape. As the performers - Aiste Noreikaite and Zoë Dowlen - explore various physical states also interfaced to produce sounds, what emerges will be the result of our communal experience as we explore the interior spaces of the chapel and of ourselves.
The event is free, but donations (£3) are welcome.
Zoë Dowlen lives and works in Switzerland, she trained originally in visual arts at Glasgow and Chelsea College of Art and is currently investigating various methods of performance, stemming from an interest in Butoh dance.
Aiste Noreikaite is a graduate of Sound Arts & Design from University of the Arts London. Before becoming a sound designer, she spent 13 years playing classical piano in Lithuania. Another turn in her journey led her to the Experience Helmet, in which the worlds of Sound, Music and Neurology are fused together.
