An intergalactic journey in sound, for cello solo and live (surround) electronics
Inspired by the latest discoveries in astrophysics, Catalan composer Hèctor Parra wrote Arne Deforce an unforgettable piece of atmospheric cosmic music. Conceived as a psychoacoustic trip through a gigantic black hole, this work takes us beyond the limits of the known. On the other side of the black hole – like a perplexing paradise – lies the ungraspable world of the holographic universe. Together with sound designer Thomas Goepfer, Arne Deforce creates an extraordinary sound world that gauges the deepest spaces of the universe.
