LGM#2 Teaser

Watch on Vimeo

The series is based on an extensive database of pulsars and neutron stars from the Australian National Telescope Facility. Exploring the rhythms and wavelengths of these rotating sources of radio emission for aesthetic patterns and harmonies, the extremely fast pulses and strong gamma rays of these exotic celestial bodies are transformed into clicks, sine waves and light. The minimalistic multi-channel piece stringently follows the specifications of the currently known 2659 pulsars. When discovered in 1967, the precision and apparent artificiality of the received signal led the researchers to nickname the unknown phenomenon LGM-1, for “little green men”. Over three movements, Quadrature’s interpretation builds an increasingly dense space of sound and light in honor of these metronomes of the universe.
Duration approx. 20 minutes.
Size and Setup variable.

In collaboration with soundartist Kerim Karaoglu.

LGM#2 was created as part of the #bebeethoven fellowship program, a project by PODIUM Esslingen on the occasion of the Beethoven anniversary 2020, funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation.

Created with the use of ATNF Pulsar Catalogue (www.atnf.csiro.au), Manchester, R. N., Hobbs, G.B., Teoh, A. & Hobbs, M., AJ, 129, 1993-2006 (2005)
