Mutual entanglements in collaboration: a journey in Cosmic Time

Press/Media: Article/Feature

Description

How long does it take for light to cross a proton? Or for unstable particles to decay?1 Cosmic time is a concept that inspires deep thinking about the universe and our place within its vastness. Time intervals can be infinitesimally small or unimaginably large, observed across billions of years through eras and epochs. As part of The Boom International Festival of Percussion, Cosmic Time (6 October 2022, Seymour Centre) is a work that skilfully wrangles with the immensity of this concept. Percussionist/director Louise Devenish, composer Amanda Cole, and visual artist Michaela Gleave have created an immersive encounter connecting us to our ancient cosmological past, featuring performers Kaylie Melville, Leah Scholes, Niki Johnson and Louise Devenish. At 40-minutes in duration, the work is condensed into anthropogenetic frames of reference, forcing the audience to surrender to the astonishing magnitudes of its sonic variabilities.
