We are sorry to announce that this performance has been canceled. We regret any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you at other upcoming events.

An extension of his previous work with Cathode-Ray Oscilloscopes, Robin Fox’s laser show presents, in three-dimensional visual space, the geometry of sound. Enveloping the audience with synchronised sound and light, his performance resembles a synesthetic experience where what you hear is also what you see. The same electricity generated to produce sound is sent simultaneously to high-speed motors that deflect the laser light, converting sonic vibration into light movement.
