Immersive 3D Scenography. Electro-Acoustic World Music.
An illusionistic 3D experience
Amid the current turbulent climate of cultural and spiritual conflict that exists between the East and the West, Iranian/American ensemble  NIYAZ aim to bridge the gap of understanding and tolerance through their music. NIYAZ believe that music can open a universal line of communication to celebrate shared human values and a desire for unity.

Experience The Fourth Light - Click to Watch
Their ground-breaking new show THE FOURTH LIGHT evolves into a new Immersive & Multi-Sensory Experience.  In collaboration with interactive designer/visual artist Jerome Delapierre, NIYAZ present a live musical and sacred dance performance with interactive technologies and advanced projection/body-mapping techniques that respond to sound and movement in real time. 

The end result creates a new kind of Digital Scenography and live musical experience, one in which virtual and real space merge to create an illusionistic three-dimensional environment that eliminates the distance between the audience and performers. This seamless synthesis of sound, space, image and light, actually invites the audience inside the art to share in a unique narrative and multi-sensory experience. Watch Preview
