Sound, light, chocolate and perfume: a multi-sensory musical experiment

Singer-songwriter Naala melds Ghanaian roots and a London upbringing. To her, all music seems ripe for assimilation, brought together by her smooth, soulful voice and an intricate web of instrumental and electronic sound.

Her latest project seems a logical progression in her hybrid approach. Using her own synaesthesia – associating the senses with sound – she explores how we actively use our other senses in creating and receiving music. What happens if we overstimulate some senses, or deprive ourselves of others? Working with lighting and sound designers and also with a chocolatier and parfumier this is a fascinating experiment in sensuality and creativity.

All sessions in the Festival of New last about an hour.

The Concert Hall Café will be open as normal on Friday and Saturday 10am-5.30pm serving food from 12-3. Street food stalls and the bar will be open in the Hoffmann Building from 5-9pm on Friday and 3-9pm on Saturday.
