An interesting, but in terms of the surround sound experience, slightly disappointing event. You are encouraged to lie on the padded floor whilst the ambient music is presented. You get a feeling of envelopment, but due to the lack of transient/impulsive sounds, the surround aspect is not fully explored. A very relaxing experience none the less, but somewhat overpriced for just the playback of recorded audio.

If we imagine our life as a series of photos in our camera roll, it can seem like chaos when we scroll through. An experience like this provides a punctuation point. I'm hungry.
