Oracle

Following the March equinox and marking the advent of spring, a sound-art project comes to life introducing cutting-edge technology that links history with modern-day. The project is a collaboration between Lyon’s French sound designer and composer Vincent Villuis aka Aes Dana and Maltese sound artist Mario Sammut aka Cygna. Heritage Malta hosts Oracle, Malta’s silent 90-minute performance in the ancient Ħaġar Qim Megalithic Temples, a site of World Heritage value. In Oracle, the artists come together shaping their ideas and compositions that are inspired by this prehistoric site, creating a rare opportunity not only for global music lovers but also for the Maltese community with their strong connection to this cultural site.
