“There is geometry in the humming of the strings… there is music in the spacing of the spheres” -Pythagoras
National Sawdust invites you to ON A SPHERE, an ambient meditative exploration of sound worlds by composer Ricardo Romaneiro with live projections by Christian Hannon, in performance with Leo Leite (engineer/electronics), NoisioN (analog synthesizers), David Zisa (modular synthesizers), Ian Rosenbaum (percussion), Victor Caccese (percussion), & Terry Sweeny (percussion).
On A Sphere draws inspiration from the ancient philosophical concept of the Music of the Spheres, which incorporates the metaphysical principle that mathematical relationships express qualities or “tones” of energy manifesting in numbers, visual angles, shapes and sounds – all connected within a pattern of proportion. In a theory known as the Harmony of the Spheres, it’s proposed that the planets all emit their own unique hum, a resonance based on their orbital revolution. The movements of the celestial bodies – The Sun, Moon, and planets – as a form of music, the Harmony of the Spheres.
Join us as we take a 1 hour journey through the sounds of the universe interpreted by synthesizers and percussion instruments accompanied by visuals.
