OTOLAB PRESENTS NIDRA
Nidra is a live performance/installation meant to lead the audience through different states of consciousness – from awareness to relaxation and hypnosis – thanks to an accurate mix of binaural beats and spectral modulation.
Based on a music production series from Massimiliano Viel, Nidra proposes a reworking of this composition technique alongside real-time generated visuals that complement the various qualities of the audio. As a representation of the multiple elements that compose the sound, several sources of concentric circles expand, weave together and give rise to an elaborate texture, whose appearance evolves with the audio and is now geometric, now organic.
Nidra is a Sanskrit term meaning “sleep”. It also identifies an archaic yoga technique useful to reach systematic relaxation and cerebral integration.
