For the opening of Fashion Week Netherlands 2014, 4DSOUND collaborated with choreographer Nanine Linning to create a spatial composition for her stunning performance ZERO. Working with costume created by reknowned couture designer, Iris van Herpen, ZERO blends hypnotic spatial sound by Dutch sound designer Salvador Breed with video projection, Linning's dance and the spectacle of van Herpen's arresting design.
Dancers moved through the audience, interacting with physical shapes of sound that emerge in space. Shadows of music by Joseph Haydn, Arvo Pärt and Philip Glass hover in between the audience like phantoms, creating a deeply immersive experience.
'ZERO made the opening the opening of the 21st edition of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam an inspiring experience'
'Using the 4DSOUND system, Breed managed to surround visitors with his sounds, creating an intense and almost hypnotic experience. When the dancers started moving across the runway -often as groups and sometimes as couples- the emotion in the room was palpable'
