Artist-led research project Here, a nut falls twice presents a newly commissioned sculptural sound installation for the ICA Theatre.

Here explores the idea of falling as it relates to sleep, love and physics. The project invites audiences to partake in collective listening – tuning into the ‘frequencies’ of falling and being held by its transient potential.

For its opening night, artists Yen Chun Lin and Lou Drago present a live sound performance with the installation.

Dear attentive ones, 

We invite you to be present with us – here. You’re welcome to embody anything between an attentive sleep or a sleepy-wakeful state and allow yourself to fall together with us. Listen closely. We invite you to quietly notice all that is in the room with us, and tune in to both bodily sensing-hearing and active listening. Through the whispering of ambient stories and the dripping of memories from our (non–)human ancestors, we will tune our collective liminal state to create a shared dreamscape that will animate the installation. Long after you leave, the resonances of this evening’s sonic explorations will linger in the room. 

Dreamily yours, Lou & Yen
