DIVE is a project with percussion, voice and electronica, performed in musea or exposition spaces, with the public visiting the exhibition halls with headphones. The musicians play live in the building, a bit hidden, and the audience hears them through headphones while they visit the exposition. In this way the project proposes an intimate and intriguing way of exploring the exposition, giving a unique frame that stimulates each one's imagination.
The audience’s disposition is based on the idea of a network connecting each person by what they experience.

Museum M Leuven (2019)
