On these dark winter nights, you can hear the universe singing! In a special 107 projects/Vivid edition Pretty Gritty presents a magic night of performances and installations. Come up to the rooftop of 107 to watch the stars and (g)listen.

Nestled amongst the succulent greenery of the rooftop garden will be a multi-speaker installation and performance by Melanie Herbert, and a sound and light fantasia of cosmic compositions, A Galaxy of Suns, by Michaela Gleave with Amanda Cole & Warren Armstrong. Then performing for our (g)listening pleasure will be Alex White, trying out his new mode of gleaming glitches, and Reuben Ingall offering his ever-malleable musical universe of glorious ambient glitterings. Weaving in amongst it will be Samuel James’ luminous light drawing videos. Ascend and transcend!
