VISUALLY DEAFENING



Sound is exciting. It is a phenomenon that we associate with only one sense, but we can experience it with more than just the ears. It has no mass and no volume, but when surrounded by a deafeningly loud sound you cannot help but feel claustrophobic. It is directional and dependent on movement but we cannot see it. It has texture but we cannot feel it.

We don't know what it looks like, but we know how to interpret it through our own movement. Why do you tap your feet? Why nod your head? Is dance not a visualisation of sound? So, what does sound look like?
