Number ‘i’

Title: The number ‘i’
Date: 2014
Material: Metal, Wood, Meat, Electricity
Dimensions: 8′ x 8′ x 28’30”

The number ‘i’ refers to a mathematical concept; the imaginary number – it is the square route of minus one, considered to be a mathematical impossibility, but essential for theoretical discussion. This is an improvised sound work which attempts to represent things outside of existing language. We are searching for two elements, Om and Ma; Om can be best described as the sound of the universe, Ma is the space between things, the silence which allows us to experience sound. The instruments have been entirely made and programmed by the performers who follow a non-linear score to improvise sound around what they hear; converting movement and text, air and metal – into sound.
