Episodes (Odcinki) are a new series created in 2016 by the City Culture Institute. They combine music, video art, theatre, performances and other genres. Every Episode is going to be site-specific, absorbed in a particular venue, directly emerging and referring to it.
The Misophonic Episode was designed to be a sensual journey through the emotions and sounds connected with the experience of MISOPHONIA. The main route of the event will be based on the music activities of the Great Misophonic Orchestra (Wielka Orkiestra Mizofoniczna), eating and AFFECTIVE body movements. Yours as well.
It’s dark in here. Total DARKNESS. You can feel heavy amplitudes of the sound and ground. You enter the oversensitive ear of the city. You pass through its next episodes. You activate the ecosystem, which starts to pulsate with its own rhythm. The sound is spreading, rubbing you. Plug in. Try it. Listen to it: the intimacy of the situation can fray your nerves.
