Mysterium Novum at WhiteBox

Inspired by a project conceived over a century ago by synesthetic composer Alexander Scriabin, contemporary music ensemble The Nouveau Classical Project presents their latest installation, Mysterium Novum. In an environment of lush ribbons created by synesthetic artist Anne Patterson, reactive flowers, scent, light, and live music performed by a ten-piece ensemble come together to create a multi-sensory world. Mysterium Novum is an immersive installation that melds ribbons, light, music, and interactive technology inspired by synesthesia, a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sense immediately triggers another. Audience members are free to roam around this synesthetic forest and experience a synthesis of art and the senses. Conceived by NCP clarinetist Isabel Kim. June 26th at 6pm (doors at 5:45pm) & 8pm (doors at 7:30pm).
