Rest Within The Wake

artists
James Allister Sprang
 

Rest Within The Wake is a 45-minute sensory poem for the spirit, generated by artist James Allister Sprang, featuring advanced spatial audio called 4DSound. The culmination of an original orchestral score alongside large-scale indigo weavings, this work unpacks how the blues - a celebration of the catastrophic- are woven into the joy of our everyday lives. The work invites audiences to listen deeply, which is “a radical action that allows us to slow down, turn inward, and heal,” Sprang says. “Deep listening consciously brings awareness to the present moment while welcoming our bodies, our ancestors, our traumas, our pain, our longings, visions, and dreams.”
