“People with synaesthesia experience the automatic, involuntary linking of one sense with another, for example they might see music as colours. Brisbane-based music group, Argo, have recreated this phenomenon for their audience in their new show 'Saturation', with thoughtful results. “

Argo’s 'Saturation' combined classical music with electronic beats, choreographed to a light show. But that is a flat, pale description of what the musicians have achieved.”

“While this is not a piece to be downloaded from iTunes so you can bop around the house to it, it was a really unusual and wonderful performance. It allowed the audience to experience music in a totally new way.”
