AETHER is a new spatial audio-visual collaboration between musician Max Cooper and Architecture Social Club. It plays on the beauty of fundamental natural forms - waves, surfaces, symmetries and surreal landscapes, as the building blocks and underlying structure of the world around us - a modern interpretation of the luminiferous aether.
Aether comprises a 3-dimensional lattice of light, mapped to a live immersive audio experience. The audience can walk around, underneath and fully explore the space as the light-field warps around them, playing on the connection between spatial and sonic structures, and our intrinsic emotional connection to fundamental natural form.
