Marvin Ayres and Pete Gomes: Sensory
Sensory creates a beautiful audio-visual environment for DVD using a complex mix of spatial acoustics and computer generated sequences.Sensory creates an environment to relax; to think; to escape; to come down; to wind down; to contemplate; to refresh; to explore…A gentle, hypnotic and mesmerising experience, of soft coloured constantly changing light and music composed for electric cello and violin, Sensory lulls the viewer into a relaxed state allowing a space to think, to escape for a short time, and wind down inside a rich audio-visual experience, engendering a psycho-acoustic environment.
