Dimecres de SO i COS Marcel·lí Bayer: The stars that will never die
In November 2022, the Hubble Space Telescope captured the explosion and decay of a supernova that happened eleven billion years ago, when the universe was only one-fifth of its current age.
This was the first time humanity was able to witness the death of a massive star.
Supernova outbursts are not only important because they represent the end of a dying star. They also create the perfect breeding ground for future stars, without which space would be devoid of carbon and oxygen, the elements that make life on Earth possible.
Stars live and die and, in this in-between time, mysteriously illuminate the sky above us.
By processing and manipulating the sound he obtains from an old “Full Boehm” clarinet, Marcel-lí Bayer proposes a sound abstraction of the celestial bodies.
In this session, therefore, the cycle of “Sound and Body Wednesdays” will orbit around celestial music and, in a poetic way, Johannes Kepler will meet Theobald Böhm and Francis F. Lee in an encounter that promises to defy the laws of gravity.
