“Orbital” is Nico Stephou’s multidisciplinary project in which he creates sounds out of shapes. By creating a family of symbols, he proposes a language. These symbols are translated into records, one record for each. The combination of these symbols lead to sound-sentences. By playing four of them at the same time on a quadraphonic sound system, the artist creates a sonic image of this graphical conversation. The performance at Thkio Ppalies on the 30th of November 2017, will last for three hours. The crowd will be able to walk in and out of the space at any time as the atmosphere is intended for meditation.
