Gracing Space logga



Kurt Nyberg filosofie doktor, cataloug about our performance in Uppsala Cathedral(in Sweden)2010:

"Space is not mute. Early on, the Greek philosopher Pythagoras believed the Universe was connected by harmonic and musical correlations in a music of spheres. Mari Kretz and Girilal Baars connect this primeval notion to a new technology in the Gracing Space Project. Through real-time live takes and recordings of low frequency radio waves outdoors, atmospheric sounds are presented that are normally not accessible to the ear.

The buzzing,rattling and whining whistles are processed in real-time by Kretz and Baars in a poetry of endlessness. The sounds emerge in all their mystery in the Cathedrals own cosmos. They harmonize with the medieval notion that the space and proportions of the Cathedral should echo the music of the spheres. The experience is influenced by the resting position. Directly underneath us lie people who have been dead for generations. Far above us loom the pointed arches of the vaults."
