Out of Sight – 
Maya Verlaak

Out of Sight is a spatial listening game that enfolds as choreography. Bat sounds outputted from performers phones instruct them how to move and be aware of their surroundings.

“I have been interested in writing New Work for Kirkos Ensemble for a couple of years already. The project Biosphere gives a context to work with but allows a lot of freedom for the composer to experiment.”
