The duo alokori – An Laurence, guitar and voice, and Sara Constant, flute and electronics, present a brand new acoustic, electronic, and sound art performance work of their own inspired by metaphors of distance, the fragility of belonging, and the construction of home. Part performance, part installation, alokori’s new work expresses itself through sound, narrative, and movement, using musical performance and electronic devices to create a nostalgic soundscape.
