Cinnamon Sphere creates cinematic, ritual, performance for the eyes and ears. Improvised soundscapes which highlight timbre, cyclical contour and gesture are created with altered electric guitar and effects by Nilan Perera and with computer assisted performance by Sarah Peebles. Using this sonic palette, calligrapher Chung Gong Ha creates large-scale abstract ink works, drawing from an inner meditative space and from the interactive, improvised sonic dialogue of the musicians, who in turn interpret a kind of musical score based on Gong's visual images and his act of creation. Together, they create a space of suspended time, weaving a story which evolves in the moment, leaving a residue of ink, emotion and memory.

Performed by Cinnamon Sphere: Sarah Peebles, Nilan Perera, Chung Gong Ha, with guest Jin Hi Kim.
Produced by Sarah Peebles.
Assisted by the Canada Council for the Arts.
