Why Soniq Xhibition?


OBJECTIVES:
 
1.    Collaboration between the arts and the audience
 
Soniq Xhibition is the result of the marriage between the song, the muse, the artist and the audience. It answers the questions, “How does the artist involve the audience in the creative process? What if the creative process was performance art?” As the model (while singing) flows from pose to pose and from song to song, the artists capture the experience on canvas.  The final product becomes more than just a painting or drawing, but a living, breathing story burned into the artists’ and the spectator audience’s memory. As a result, the audience has a multi-textural experience.  It is no longer merely entertainment, but a sensual activity that engages the whole being – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual.  The audience inspires the process as much as the artists inspire the audience.
 
2.    Arts Education
 
*Expose audiences to music of different countries, cultures and languages.
