At Resonate, Alex will be introducing Aeon, the studio’s flagship interactive project currently in development – a new format, ‘single-space’ immersive A/V theatre piece that asks whether we can obtain self-mastery through the machine, and at what cost. Aeon Industries will also be premiering ‘Brainrave,’ a beta live format that uses EEG headgear to connect mind, body and sound through visualisation and group experience.
