From January 18 to 29 in the dome of the Satosphere
The Society for Arts and Technology [SAT] is presenting -22.7°C, an immersive experience in the dome of the Satosphere. Inspired by the musician Molécule’s adventure in the Polar Circle, this work offers a multi-sensory journey to the far north.
French music producer Molécule is the pioneer of “nomadic electronic music.” Following on from his debut album, for which he spent 34 days on an Atlantic fishing trawler, he went to Greenland to make -22.7°C. Starting out from a remote Inuit village, he went on various trips to glaciers and fjords where he used his “survival elektrokit” to record environmental sounds such as howling wind, loud crackling deep in the Arctic ice, and the crunch of snow. He then processed the sounds and mixed them into beats.
In -22.7°C, the evocative power of Molecule’s music is enhanced by the immersive dome experience, the visuals created by Dirty Monitor, and an interactive installation that reacts to the movements of the public. Soundscapes are like living organisms that surround us. Sounds punch a hole through the veneer of reality and take us to another level, deep beneath the ice and up into the firmament, to feel the caress of the Northern Lights.
Lasting 40 minutes, this sensory odyssey in the polar Circle can be appreciated without being consumed by the cold. Tickets for the evening presentations in the SAT dome are available now.
