Urnos by André Hamel.

Let this multidisciplinary work carry you into a fascinating mythological world. This work uses music, dance, and video to recreate a ritual from the mysterious Urnossian civilization. Archaeological digs conducted north of the Indus Valley in the early 20th century unearthed fragments revealing a music notation system dating back to circa 3,000 B.C. A collective of creators have drawn inspiration from this discovery that has deeply changed how we see the world and evolution, and offer a freeform interpretation of this long-gone culture.
