A textile organism as an electronic instrument.
The meaning of the word ‘onism’ comes from the frustration caused by the awareness of being bound to one body that can inevitably experience only one place at a time. “ONISMA” offers a way to overcome this new feeling by allowing the audience to escape the place in which they feel stuck to reach a different one. A sound journey is activated through an electronic organism fed by urban sounds, which offers the audience an alternative way to walk through various cities. Church bells, birds, subway announcements, etc., become the foundation of a new experience of the urban landscape, allowing us to overcome our bodily limitations.
