A non-place, an in-between zone, Bardo is a spatial and temporal suspension within overlapping yet distinct fields interpermeated by an aetheric tactility: sounds disorientingly enter and leave, merging and confusing the boundaries of interiority and exteriority. Moving from the edge of silence to moments of complete immersion, Bardo draws on the physicality of sound - not just the physical impact on the body but the way in which sound can shape our perception of space and the flow of time – cumulatively fostering a precessional state where one expects things to change but also expects them to stay the same.
