ACE [Artist Curated Events]

Dark Waters is a study of nautical superstition, presented as a series of videos of varying lengths.
Why Nautical Superstition, you may ask.
For the past soundpedro events, phog masheeen has picked performance themes that suited the physical location of the event, in a re-purposed fort built during World War Two to protect the harbor. Although there will be no physical performances this year. We chose to continue with a theme that references the sea and is perfect for the week before Halloween.
