Demon States

The Observatory (Singapore)

​Demon States is an immersive mixed reality experience premiering new material from the forthcoming album by The Observatory & Koichi Shimizu, with virtual landscapes by Brandon Tay, and physical environments by Irfan Kasban.

Borne out of a time of physical and psychological lockdowns, Demon States  bears witness to the fear and anxiety manifesting in the human psyche in different avatars — an unseen spectre, the burgeoning of inner demons, the bogeyman within, an unforgiving hollow absence.

As an oppressive tyranny haunts our present reality, the struggle to express ourselves and seek understanding grows stronger, as we reach for the faint glow at the end of the tunnel. Trapped within our minds by our inner demons, can we release what is within, or do we let the demons consume us?

Taking audiences to four locations around Singapore, Demon States gives audiences a glimpse of reality that will break hearts and minds.
