Helicotrema 8 Audio Festival
Palazzo Grassi Atrium and Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi.

This inductive audio invites listeners to access a state of mind relating to distributed consciousness. Through unconscious processes, the ego is allowed to dissolve away, to be replaced by the multifaceted perspective of all things. The core of all social and environmental ills is Society’s inability to see things from other points of view and generate a sense of connection. This connected state of mind was first accessed by the artist while undergoing shamanic rituals in North East Mexico, and through the use of hypnotic narratives, he believes that a similar state of connection, and hence knowing, can be reached in the mind.
