Necromancy for Beginners
'The muses are ghosts, and sometimes they come uninvited'
- Stephan King
Necromancy for Beginners is a hybrid multimedia exhibition performative music project led by Studio M.A.R.S. and composer Piyawhat Louilarppasert and Taceti Ensemble (Thailand) in collaboration with Thailand Music and Art Organization (TMAO).
In both Thai and German storytelling traditions, the stories of spirits, ghosts and other worldly beings held a strong importance in their culture.
These stories, now often forgotten in the narratives of the contemporary world, will be re-explored and retold in a new immersive multimedia project.
Inspired by the late 19th century trend of Seances, Necromancy for Beginners, hopes to take the audience on a journey between the worlds of the living and the non living.
As a part concert performance, part exhibition, part augmented reality, part storytelling, part participatory theater, part A.I., Necromancy for Beginners creates a new stage that blends the traditional with the modern and explores how the digital realm can be seen as a metaphor for the spiritual realm and vice versa.
