a breathtaking sonic installation

RADIX by K&A offers a 20-minute immersive sonic journey challenging perceptions of evil. Using live binaural sound recordings, visitors experience another’s auditory world unfolding in real time. Binaural audio mimics human ear reception, intensifying intimacy and stimulating empathy. In “RADIX” music, narrative and dialogues merge, evoking a unique experience for the listener through headphones. K&A, exploring this technique since 2019, aim to evoke varied intimacies and shift perspectives, from individual immersion to broader empathy. 

The  installation proposed by K&A invites participants to reconsider their boundaries through sonic immersion.


“RADIX is a breathtaking sonic installation that will shatter your perception of the borders between you and the other while questioning the banality of evil” K&A

RADIX winner of Open Call: Empathie (De Balie)
In times of war and crises, it’s essential to reflect on the society we are and aspire to be. That’s why De Balie and Amsterdams 4 en 5 mei comité have once again joined forces for an Open Call. From the numerous and diverse submissions, the jury has selected six winners: three in the category ‘visual arts’ and three in the category ‘literature’. The winners have received a monetary prize to develop their concepts and will present them during the weekend of 4 & 5 May

"K&A explore empathy through a unique aural experience. Their practice is professional, their artistic language poetic."
