Listening Club: 'Half Asleep' @ Trafo Budapest, 8 April
Where is that fine line between being awake and asleep? Can we dream together? Can sounds direct our dreams?

David Somló’s series of events explores the boundaries of listening in the plain, empty space of Trafó Studio.

During this performance a live composition, utilizing simple elements and combining multichannel light and sound, will slowly unfold on the senses, creating an immersive, field recording-inspired environment that will envelope the listener.

Thus, Listening Club will transcend the individual nature of those attending to create a collective experience. 

David Somló is a Hungarian interdisciplinary artist. In his artistic practice he is interested in those human interactions that are small but significant, as well as the exploration of audience perception, utilizing both time and performance spaces. He composes situations. 

Date and time: 8 April, 7 pm 

Tickets: HUF 1,000

Venue: 
Trafo House of Contemporary Arts
1094 Budapest, Liliom u. 41

    Everybody has something to hide. To be successful in operative work, the informant has to ease into and stay credible in different roles. He or she should not raise suspicion in his or her private life, should gain the trust of the subject and show absolute loyalty to his or her handler.

    Many times we enjoyed telling this amazing story: It is about the triumphant return to the music biz of one of Ethiopia's leading performers - an instrumentalist who was forced into exile by a dictatorial regime hostile to the arts and ended up driving cabs for almost 30 years.
