'You are lost in a small town, late for a vital appointment somewhere in its streets. You stop a friendly-looking stranger and ask the way. Generously, he offers to give you a small map which he happens to have in his briefcase. The whole town is there, he says. You thank him and walk on, opening the map to pinpoint a route. It turns out to be a map of the whole earth.
The wrong scale.'
-- Timothy Clark, Telemorphosis: Theory in the Era of Climate Change
This piece is about derangements of scale.
The percussion part is generated from the rhythms and motions of insects. The vocal part is generated from the sounds of stars, comets, glaciers, and oceans.
Suitable for: musicians, actors, dancers
