Event Details

Queensland Conservatorium Ensemble in Residence Clocked Out Duo and members of Kupka’s Piano join for a special performance as part of Crossbows.

Kupka’s Piano explores texture, timbre and articulation through both improvisatory and notated works. Working together in mixed duos and trios, Kupka’s Piano discovers the array of sounds available in smaller configurations.

Clocked Out Duo will present their engaging Time Crystals. In 2012 Nobel prize-winning physicist Frank Wilczek published the theoretical proof for a ‘time crystal,’ which extends the idea of a crystal to four dimensions. In his conception, a time crystal would comprise ‘a group of particles that move and periodically return to their original state, perhaps in a circle.’  This unusual structure could be in perpetual motion.  Inspired by this composer Erik Griswold started to musically explore themes of perpetual motion, pattern and crystalline structure – resulting in his 13-part concert piece Time Crystals. Using an intricately designed constellation of percussive and pianistic sounds, Griswold and Vanessa Tomlinson create a kaleidoscope of shifting sound colours.
