CORDIS: Condition Blue - The Acoustics of Aquatics

October 6, 2021 | RCU Theatre


Condition Blue: The Acoustics of Aquatics is an innovative multi-media performance featuring CORDIS' edgy and expressive rock/punk signature sound amidst breathtaking aquatic imagery, artfully curated by The National Geographic Society.

Take an evocative journey into Earth’s diverse aquatic habitats where life thrives in the most extraordinary conditions. This unprecedented performance event features CORDIS performing on cimbalom (a Hungarian hammered dulcimer), percussion, guitar, cello and keyboard to create a brilliantly orchestrated water-based score. The music unfolds amidst spectacular aquatic imagery both on-stage and screen. Condition Blue represents the first in a multi-phase recording and touring project in which CORDIS explores the creative sonic and visual possibilities of water, fire, and earth in an effort to raise awareness of our planet and its precious resources.

The project was conceived by CORDIS’ primary composer and cymbalist, Richard Grimes, “to deliver audiences an array of sights and sounds they’ve never experienced before.”
