The South London Gallery presents the UK premiere of a new performance Parfums Pourpres du Soleil des Poles of a work originally created for the New Festival, Centre Pompidou, Paris in 2009.

Taking as their starting point the phenomenon of synaesthesia, a neurological process which automatically links one sense to another, the collaborating artists have made a new piece focusing on the idea of somebody seeing colours when they hear music.

Working with a synaesthesist, a minimal and static music piece will be played on traditional reed organs and then translated into a colour system simultaneously projected into the space.
