Short excerpts of each chapter, recorded at the Kubus at ZKM Karlsruhe.

The audiovisual performance LGM#2 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.

In collaboration with soundartist Kerim Karaoglu.
