Exploring the relationship between poetry and experimental electronic music, breaking the barrier between audience and artists and encouraging collaboration online and offline.
This is the first solo event organized by Naviar, an online community of artists exploring the intersection between music and other art forms. In the morning we’ll host an introductory workshop to haiku, a traditional short form of Japanese poetry. The poems created will then be used as creative prompt by Naviar’s international online community of musicians: the resulting compositions will be performed as sound installation in the evening. The event will end with live music performances by members and friends of Naviar Records.

Audio Obscura performs Lap-top based electronics for the ears, haunting the wide spectrum's of electro-acoustic music with a firm footing in the ambient realm. The sound also strays towards the experiemental; musique concrète, idm with post-classical minimal leanings occasionally push through.
Neil has summed up the Audio Obscura sound as thus;
"Light is, to the camera obscura, as sound is to Audio Obscura"
