Adventure into the unseen in KlangHaus 800 Breaths a new multi-sensory encounter of shifting sound, colour and light in the unsung roof spaces of Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall
Created by experimental art-rock collective The Neutrinos and visual artist Sal Pittman, KlangHaus is a 360 degree maverick collision between noise, concealed sound and visual imagery that reinvents the gig-going experience as site-responsive, promenade theatre. Akin to a duet with the room it’s a haunting, magical ghost train ride that puts the audience right into the music itself, almost like being inside a vast video game.
KlangHaus 800 Breaths is reinvented from the critically acclaimed 2016 Southbank Centre sell out KlangHaus: On Air. It ventures into new spaces with new songs, new visuals and new themes – but maintains the same clash of shifting sound, colour, electronica, improvisation and disorientation. Since its debut at The Edinburgh Fringe in 2014, each KlangHaus has been newly regenerated specifically for the space it is to be performed in, whether that was a former animal hospital, furniture repository, bus depot or gospel church.
KlangHaus is a true crossover experience, equally attractive to music and theatre critics, introducing theatre to rock n’ roll audiences and vice-versa as the drama of the promenade performance erupts into the dynamics of a full on loud rock show while also taking in the intimacy of a private acoustic ‘house’ concert.
