P5 headphones part of Sally Taylor’s unique Consenses events

blogimage_SOS

For the past two years, Consenses’ founder and musician Sally Taylor has engaged artists from around the world, of every medium and genre, and brought them together by asking them to interpret one another’s artwork and express it in their own medium.

Sound quality is paramount to the projects which is why Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones are part of the events, enabling the audience to hear the music as the artist intended. Music is a key aspect of the interpretative milieu, and live performances are a feature of Consenses events. But recorded music allows Consenses to offer a musical experience by artists who are not available to perform, and these headphones convey the full emotional depth of their work.

Sally explains further: “Bowers and Wilkins P5s add a sophistication and elegance to Consenses’ global, multi-disciplinary exhibition.  They are sleek as panthers and comfortable and comforting as a mother’s hands.  We are proud to deliver the musical content of Consenses to our visitors on P5s”

Consenses events attract outstanding artists and enrapture audiences. For example: a musician interprets a photograph, a dancer interprets their song, a painter interprets the dance, a perfumer interprets the painting, a poet interprets the perfume and so on until all five senses are represented. In this process, each artist is given seven days to extract the essence of the artwork they are provided and use this work as the catalyst for their own creation, ultimately expressing their raw reactions in the language of their own medium. None of the artists are privy to the identities of the other participants.

This process has formed what Sally has termed Interpretative Chains: a collective, holistic statement; an intriguing procession from one piece to the next; the revealing of a unique glimpse into the artistic process and the complexity of perception.
