Event Details

"We're taking the idea of crystal shapes, angles and lattice structures that we can visualise and transferring that to sound design" Griswold says. "What's important to me is not duplicating the mathematical structure but trying to capture the idea of the time crystals in sound."

Clocked Out Duo are a dynamic duo heralding from Brisbane. For their first visit to the Salon they bring their newest work, Time Crystals. Last year, Nobel-winning physicist Frank Wilczek posted an article proposing the existence of Time Crystals, perpetually moving structures that repeat periodically in the fourth dimension. Clocked Out Duo explore this idea of perpetual motion, pattern, and crystalline structures in musical form. Using an intricately designed constellation of percussive and pianistic sounds, Erik Griswold and Vanessa Tomlinson create a kaleidoscope of shifting sound colours.

Clocked Out Duo creates new music with a sense of play and adventure. They use prepared piano, percussion, found objects and toys to craft their trademark "warped grooves" and evocative soundscapes. Drawing on a wide variety of influences from experimental, jazz, and world music, Clocked Out has played everywhere from Sydney Opera House to Roulette (New York) and Super Deluxe (Tokyo), collaborating with a wealth of creative musicians along the way. Part of the Spotlight series, introducing exciting new ensembles.

"Time Crystals was a timeless integration of minimalist ideas with contemporary classical performance style, serving to remind us all that, despite any elitist preconceptions, music of a more esoteric nature can be engaging and fun." - Realtime Arts Magazine
