The Sancho Plan is an arts collective based in London. Founded in 2002, our aim has always been to combine the creative talents of our diverse group to create innovative immersive sonic experiences. Our works are predominantly audio-visual environments and live performances, although we have also developed accompanying online and mobile apps.
Music and sound design; graphic and character design; animation, game design and coding; hardware, software, performance and theatrical staging all play a key role in each of our projects. We often use digital technologies to explore the real-time interaction between music and visual environments, but such technologies are just the tools that we use to realise our ultimate goal of engaging our audiences through carefully considered narratives. These narratives may involve overt story-telling, or they may be more abstract, for example the creation of a space that allows you to explore visual music, or that simply takes you to “another place”.
immersive -adjective: deeply involving one’s senses; may create an altered mental state (Dictionary.com)
You can also read a transcript of founder Ed Cookson’s introduction to The Sancho Plan’s premiere performance of The Black Page at the Tyneside Cinema on 24th September 2009, which touches on some of our philosophies.
