    Event description

    Drew Silverman, COTFG and Fusebox present:

    五輪塔II (Gorintō II): Return to the Void
    "A quintessential work which surpasseth all understanding with beauty"
    - Wayne Alan Brenner, Austin Chronicle

    Gorintō II is the second iteration of an immersive performance project started back in 2019. An intimate hour-long multi-sensory piece for 5 sound artists, exploring universality and set in the inverted round.

    The audience will gather in a circle centered in the space and are encouraged to lie down on a collection of pillows and rugs (as well as bring their own favorite comfort items) to experience a series of projections on a surface hung from the ceiling. The musicians will be positioned around the audience, as will a truly surround sound speaker set up for maximal auditory experience.

    Musically speaking, Gorintō II, like its predecessor, is part soundscape, part classicist composition, part sound bath and part ASMR dream.

    Gorintō was first introduced 5 years ago to a world that looked very different from the one we have arrived in. What has changed? What hasn’t changed may be the more appropriate question. Gorintō and its voyagers seek to be a part of that dialogue, if only to venture as a compassionate companion through the ebbs and flows of modern living.

    Additionally, there will be a pre-show performance in the lobby one hour before curtain curated by COTFG. A rotating cast of sound artists will perform in the gallery space. Arrive an hour before for this special pre-show treat. $5 at the door (pre-show performance only). Arrive early for Gorintō. Due to the nature of this show late arrivals cannot be accommodated.

    *IMPORTANT*

    *To keep this show as intimate as possible, there will only be room for ~35 audience members per performance. Purchase tickets ASAP!

    *The nature of this show encourages lying on a padded, slightly raised floor, please inform us in the notes section of your ticket purchase if you require assistance and we will try to make reasonable accommodations.

    *ARRIVE EARLY FOR GORINTŌ. DUE TO THE NATURE OF THIS SHOW LATE ARRIVALS CANNOT BE ACCOMMODATED.
