if a bee falls in a forest (work in progress) is a natural science performance conjuring enchanted realms of the visual and audio. Three alchemist artists follow a self-written pseudo spell book containing the equation for transcribing and transmutation. Choreographed movements and tactile interactions with sculptures produce an ethereal sound composition. Sound vibrations forcefully move sculptures. Objects and bodies illuminate the intricacy of sound and give it physical body. Light transforms into water, water turns into sound and sound is made visible.
