COTFG and Drew Silverman present:
五輪塔 (Gorintō): A New Music Sensory Experience
Gorintō (五輪塔) is an intimate evening-length multi-sensory piece for 5 sound artists, exploring universality and set in the inverted round. The audience will gather in a circle centered in the space and are encouraged to lie down on a collection of pillows and rugs (as well as bring their own favorite comfort items) to experience a series of projections on several surfaces hung from the ceiling. The musicians will be positioned surrounding the audience, as will a truly surround sound speaker set up for maximal auditory experience.
Gorintō is part soundscape, part classicist composition, part sound bath and part ASMR dream.

To keep this show as intimate as possible, there will only be room for ~35 audience members per performance, so purchase tickets ASAP!
The nature of this show encourages lying on a padded, slightly raised floor, please inform us in the notes section of your ticket purchase if you need any accommodations to make you comfortable in this environment.
Gallery-performance-only admission 5$ at the door
Although the majority of Gorintō is atmospheric and meditative, there are moments of visual and auditory intensity. If you have any photo or auditory sensitivity, please be advised.
