The first of the three exhibition blocks of the Order of Sonic Chaos project, called Preliminary Shrine, combines sound objects and visual art into a unique installation in the catacombs. The exhibited ritual sound instruments and objects use the principle of psychoacoustic effects, ultrasound, and controlled rotation. They are based on the artistic practice of the eponymous collective Order of Sonic Chaos, which has used some of these objects in sound ceremonies since 2015. The visual artists František Hanousek and Jakub Hájek were invited to collaborate, and on this occasion, they work with the motifs of parafiction, pain, and resonance of body organs. Sound artist and composer Natálie Pleváková was invited to use the installation as an instrument interface for the concert situation.

Exhibiting artists: Angakok Thoth (SK), František Hanousek (CZ), Jakub Hájek (CZ), Jonáš Gruska (SK)
