Exploring Space and Sound is a collaboration between Lulia Togara and members of Ancient Infinity Orchestra.
As you enter our shared space, your presence will directly inspire the sounds we create. The more people who enter the space, the more dense the spontaneous composition shall become.
We live in a society of many voices that have the potential to resonate together with sympathetic listening and awareness of one another. This performance hopes to reflect that idea. With the combination of spoken word, musical improvisation we hope to provide a healing, self-motivating and uplifting experience for participants.
The experience will run every 15 minutes

Ancient Infinity Orchestra are a band based in Leeds. Formed at the beginning of 2018, they broke onto the Leeds scene playing gigs and collaborating with artists from other disciplines. Summer saw the band invited to play at a run of music festivals, such as Marsden Jazz and Chapel Allerton Arts Festival, and the year finished with gigs for Manchester’s Northern Quarter Jazz. Their eponymous debut record was released in the same year with a sellout gig.
The beginning of 2019 saw them devise a collaborative project of 26 musicians and creatives from around the UK to release ‘Cosmosaic’ their Debut LP. A project exploring the social and environmental impact of human activity on earth in musical and apocalyptic spoken verse. They then played at Liverpool International Jazz Festival and are now looking forward to more music and arts festivals they are a part of this year.
Genre-fluid, melodic and dynamic music played with jazz instrumentation, inspired by devotional music from around the world, nature itself and artist such as Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders.
