SKALAR LIVE SHOW
The rare special SKALAR live shows provide a one-hour long intensive concert experience in the SKALAR environment. The connection between beats and performative visuals play a dominant role when the SKALAR creators Christopher Bauder and Kangding Ray experiment with the light and sound dimensions of SKALAR. The SKALAR live shows are an extended journey into human emotions. The artists are reshaping their creation in real-time with alternating ambient and beat-driven sections heading for an ultimate climax.
Even if you have visited the SKALAR daily exhibition already, make sure to catch one of those rare live events to hear and feel the unfiltered raw power of SKALAR. No live show is like the other.
