An asmr-inspired sound performance at Gorinto hosted by Center of the Friendly Ghost (COTFG)


Press Release

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, and part ASMR dream.
