Creating sonic shivers, pelvic quivers and suffocating skittish shadows… An old piano, two cellos, eight violins and other instruments come to life with a cacophony of rust and stone, oak and glass, hair and bone towers incandescent.

Taking inspiration from psychological anomaly Folie à deux (shared delusional psychosis), Inducer is an immersive animated environment where musicians and sound sculptures merge into the unsettling realms of the unreal.

Inducer is a commission by Cryptic Nights from Glasgow-based artist Robbie Thomson. Sarah Milne and Jack Wrigley collaborate with Thomson, fusing kinetic sculpture and musical instrument design to create an off-kilter, curious and peculiar world which promises to delight, disarm and disorientate in equal measure.
