Take your free immersive VR experience session Trail of Angels on February 14th & 16th at the Symphony Hall Birmingham!
Trail of Angels is a meditative VR animation that invites the viewer to explore a mysterious afterlife world based on Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis’ paintings and music, observing and interacting with the surrounding during visually stunning day-night cycles. This VR experience is brought to you by Telesoftas and SneakyBox on the occasion of the Lithuanian national celebration of the Lithuanian Independence Day, which is also marked by the concert and the UK premiere of 'The Sea' by MK Ciurlionis, conducted by Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla on the 16th of February 2019 from 7 pm at the Birmingham's Symphony Hall.
'This is a tribute to the precursor of multimedia artists and one of the pioneers of abstract art in Europe - the most famous Lithuanian creator, Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis. He was breaking the boundaries of disciplines to make a total creation with his own cosmogony' - says director of this VR Kristina Buozyte.
