SonicMandala is an alchemical approach to sound that stimulates vision through hexaphonic resonance: a technique Reimmortal developed to create a sonic bubble inside which the vision is generated.
Bystanders are immersed in the darkness, lying on the ground, isolated from any physical distraction. Their own bodies form a screen through which the mandalaemerges and spreads to all participants, who are no longer spectators, but co-creators of a collective work.
Reimmortal formally requested and obtained permission from the Buddist comunityin Italy to use the word “mandala” for this sonic experience. This happened in a meeting in Rome, where the tibetan mandala was compared to the sonic one. For “SonicMandala” Marco received the Patronage of CID (Conseil International de la Danse) –UNESCO in Paris and of the Municipality of Rome.
In 2015 he created SonicMandala, which was an alchemical approach to sound that stimulates vision through hexaphonic resonance: a technique he developed in order to create a sonic bubble within which vision is generated.
Phase I of SonicMandala was previewed for the first time in Rome in 2013 at the Duncan 3.0 – Contemporary Dance Center. In 2014, Phase II arrived in a double location: both at Duncan 3.0 and at Spazio Interiore as part of a double conference-debate with the participation of the Tibetologist Filippo Lunardi of ‘La Sapienza’ in Rome. Phase III was performed in 2016 at the Centro Danza Balletto di Roma on the occasion of the World Dance Day under the Patronage of CID (Conseil International de la Danse) – UNESCO in Paris.
In February 2017, the entire cycle (Phase I, II, III) received the Patronage of the City of Rome in the Sala Santa Rita (former Santa Rita Church at Teatro Marcello). Under the same Patronage, SonicMandala was performed in the Factory of MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Arts) in Rome on June 2 and 3.
