Close Talker has always strived to push their craft toward new uncharted territories. This summer, they are inviting the audience to join them and take part in pioneering a new, innovative form of live music consumption: a 3D-360 Silent Headphone Concert. The audience’s headphone mix will utilize cutting edge binaural mixing technology, live in real time. The sound will fully immerse the audience with instrumentation and voices orbiting and swirling around them on all axes, increasing the impact and depth of the band’s already acclaimed live show. Close Talker will be performing their new unreleased album How Do We Stay Here? from front to back. To heighten the experience even further, each performance will showcase a local visual artist who will offer their interpretation of the music and manipulate their craft live, offering a multi-sensational, immersive experience. The objective is to take part and invest in the power that music and art can offer, both on a personal and communal level. The goal is to create an environment where one can truly let go, if only for a moment.
