String Figures is an audiovisual album collaboration between Zoë Mc Pherson (concept, sound) and Alessandra Leone (visual story and direction).

A transmedia piece in 7 chapters merging organic & electronic worlds,
folk & the global digital space

String Figures is inspired by the ancient and current practice of ‘Cat’s Cradle’ all over the world

Figures as leisure game, graphical art form, medium for storytelling, chanting, connecting to one another and spiritual expression

A continuous weaving of Strings approached with hypnotic sounds, mathematical choreography, subliminal landscapes and otherworldly journeys

Zoë Mc Pherson & Alessandra Leone make tactile meditations associated with a certain twist of the string

Each chapter explores a symbolic axis around which liminal transformations occur

From the unknotting of the opening to the final transmission, the movements of String Figures coil around a sonic memory
