The Assembly

‘The Assembly’ is an immersive sound ritual at the crossroad between physical and virtual worlds. Here, the human and digital merge to revisit the ancient practice of collective singing. Immersed in the multi-sensorial space of ‘The Assembly’, you encounter The Memory of Voice, a mystic creature living in a world of dreamy beats and bodily sounds.The MoV initiates you into different practices of sounding together, inviting you to compose in virtual reality, play in an interactive installation or simply enjoy the sound of endless human expression during a performance-concert. The project is mobile and touring from Luxembourg to France and Lithuania as part of the “European Capital of Culture 2022” program.
