This was the centerpiece of the performance. It is inspired by the bridge between quantum and classical physics. The piece deals with the relationships and entanglements between musicians, the interference of sound and action, science, music, and the meaning of life.
Double Slit – Interference patterns of similar notes allude to the classic experiments on the duality of light. Percussion moves it all along. Are those church bells? Just sit back and be.
Eigen Do This – A little math goes a long way. A seven dimensional Eigenspace for improv. Principal Axes.
Universal Entanglement – On a macroscopic level, the group mixes it up and really has some fun. Without each other we are nothing. Together we rock.
That Cat’s Death has been Greatly Exaggerated – Slows down into existential contemplation. Are we alive or dead or both at the same time. I ponder, I develop, I repeat, therefore I am.
Anthropica (Life in the Multiverse) – Bring it all back to human interactions pull together with a Conduction inspired by Butch Morris. Tension builds, tension builds, and finally a big bang to nothingness.
