‘Vocal ensemble Khyaal explore imaginings stemming from the intuitive expression of the naked voice. Featuring vocalists Aarti Jadu, Mel Taylor, Siobhan Housden and Aurora Darby, four distinct voices converge into one rich soundscape in their uniquely immersive and electric performances.
Described as enchanting, ethereal and haunting, the choir builds a wordless canopy through improvised a cappella singing. In homage to the 2019 White Night Ballarat theme spark, as they sing their bodies will be caressed by evocative images, immersing them in pulsating, flickering and swirling flames created by artist, Helen Gory.’
Vocal ensemble Khyaal features Aarti Jadu, Mel Taylor, Siobhan Housden and Aurora Darby. Khyaal is an intuitive expression of voices, converging and drawing strength from their differences to create an immersive soundscape. // The visuals created by artist Helen Gory are described as surreal visual stories, concerned with shadows and revelation.
