Ian Brill's Vault 2016

This year is the last time to experience Ian Brill's Vault at Spirit.

An audiovisual, architectural installation, the Vault encompasses audience members and performers alike through "responsive, programmatic methods, emergent, immersive behaviors, and expressions evolve." In other words, with light panels seemingly covering the walls and ceiling, the venue is activated by the musician, band, or DJs, unifying the perceived environment with live music.

The Vault first premiered in 2016 in Spirit's Hall and has taken place there every year since. Leigh Yock, Spirit's events manager and co-owner, says this year is the last edition of the installation because both Spirit and Brill would like to grow and offer/create new things. "We have other tricks up our sleeve," she says.
