Breaking from the inner core through the ripples of mantel and crust, submerged in subocean-like depths, the movement continues. Sudden trembling, transient rush and
pulsating sensation of air boiling from a seemingly motionless surface, caused by Surges,
of what feels like instrument's own heartbeats, reveal the flight that is never to happen.
Yet the notion of this fluttering motion cutting through air, tilts the view. Up to the
soundscapes of galaxies far away, present here and now, only through this imagination
of un-trapped-like freedom and livelihood of this, now Dead Wasp. Carried by these
waves, the gaze continues to travel through Clouds, Above the Trees, balancing through
all the obstructing obstacles. Untangled from all in the line of sight, it is time to explore
different perspectives of endless dark, ornamented with uncountable stars.
"Time Traveling Stargazer" (from the “Temporality of the Impossible”* 2018/2019
series) is a performance featuring contemporary solo violin pieces by Harðarson (Surge,
2017-18), Iannotta (dead wasps in a jam-jar (I), 2014-15), Johnson (Wolke über Bäumen,
2016), Cage (Freeman Etudes, selection, 1977-80+1989-90), and Lim (The Su Song Star
Map, 2018), inviting all the curious ears to enter and experience these wonder worlds of
sound, here and now.
