SUPER CRITICAL MASS

SUPER CRITICAL MASS

You’re invited to join a sonic celebration in the heart of Southport CBD. Join 30 participants from the community, each donning a set of handbells to create monochromatic sound fields. Moving around the CBD, each individual will create a singular sound, letting it expand and stretch out across the space before converging together activating an ambient mass.
