Japanese clothing designers Niløs use an audio-visual collaboration to promote their new range

Niløs presents the audio-visual component of { Pillars }, the Fall-Winter 2016-17 collection featuring a collaboration between composer and sound artist Paul Jebanasam and visual artist Tarik Barri.

The project is comprised of a 6 min audio-visual work and an extended electroacoustic composition created for a quadraphonic speaker installation. A 3D binaural stereo version of the piece will also be available as a digital download. The physical item is a custom designed USB storage device created by metal craft brand Claustrum.

Using the visual theme of the collection as a starting point, Jebanasam and Barri have created a stunning new piece of art which further extends their ongoing series of works which explore the relationships between light and sound. Pillars fuses these two mediums together into a vibrant material that glows with an intense singular energy.

The multichannel audio composition offers a companion to the audio-visual piece giving Jebanasam the space to explore deeper into the hyperreal sonic morphologies of his most recent critically acclaimed album, Continuum for Subtext Recordings. Pillars is released on September the 9th on Niløs exclusively via the label’s online store.
