The Conscious Sky (NO/UK)

Mixing recordings from space, soundtrack, vocal ensemble, percussion and Hindu texts, Marcus Davidson creates a modern version of Pythagoras’s Music of the Spheres

 

When we look at the sky at night, we imagine space as a vast empty void, thinly populated by stars and planets. But modern quantum physics tells us that even the most lonely points in the universe pulsate with the energy of the zero point field.  So all space is energy, therefore all space is frequency, therefore the universe IS sound.

 

The ancient Hindus said that the universe began with the word OM.  When you listen to recordings from space, this word seems ever constant.  It makes you wonder what these ancient people really knew.  It seems the universe is full of sound, yet our senses can only detect a very narrow window of it.

 

The Conscious Sky is a concert length performance that blends space recordings with vocal ensemble, percussion and Hindu texts.  If you ever wondered what Pythagoras's Music of the Spheres sounds like, here it is."

 

The Conscious Sky features the amazing vocal overtoning of Jayson Stilwell.
