Description

Sit back. Get comfortable. Close your eyes…

Dreamachine is an immersive experience like no other. Join UNBOXED on a once-in-a-lifetime journey to explore the extraordinary potential of your own mind. This powerful new kind of collective experience will come from within, conjured entirely by light and music. The colourful world of the Dreamachine will unfold behind your closed eyes – created by your own brain and completely unique to you. The most complex technology required is the brain itself.

About

The 21st Century Dreamachine is a seated multisensory experience with an immersive lightscape and 360 degree spatial sound. It has been created by a team of leading minds in architecture, technology, music, neuroscience, and philosophy, including Turner Prize-winning collective Assemble and Grammy-nominated composer Jon Hopkins.

Like a modern kind of campfire, you’ll share your Dreamachine journey with a group of up to 22 people at a time. After your experience, you’ll be invited to reflect on what you saw, what you heard and how you felt – by yourself, or with others.

Please Note:

Times will vary.

 

Experiences

Dreamachine offers two versions of the experience: High Sensory and Deep Listening.

Please complete the pre-booking form before booking your ticket.

Proof of completion of this form will be required for entry to the High Sensory experience.

High Sensory

The High Sensory experience contains fast flashing bright lights, known as strobe lighting, and 360 degree spatial audio that has been used to create a deeply immersive experience. For many people, the effects of the lights and the music will generate colourful patterns and visuals behind your closed eyes.

Deep Listening

The Deep Listening experience is an immersive 360 degree spatial audio experience, with a gentle lightscape. It does not contain fast flashing lights. It has been designed to make the experience as accessible as possible to those who may have sensitivities to strobe lighting or high sensory environments.
