2:14 pm Simina Oprescu “Deep Surroundings”, concert, 45 Min.,
There are always two worlds in which we move. We are connected with all other people, but we nevertheless each experience what is happening around us in a very different, individual way. Particularly in times of isolation, when one is thrown back on oneself, we occasionally become painfully aware of this dichotomy. In The Hidden Environment – The Feeling of the Cave , Simina Oprescu spans a bridge between the interior and the exterior, these two realities of life, which are in constant flux. Our diverse technological extensions along with special vocal techniques that make one’s innermost core vibrate serve as the artist’s instruments.
