As a companion to Solar Winds, the octophonic electroacoustic work … and Beyond explores the cosmos beyond our immediate imagination. What universe lies beyond the limits of our imagination? What kind of phenomena would occur in this universe? Would they be the result of pure chance or destiny? What would then be the nature of this destiny? Describing such an environment necessitates that the composer imagine the unimaginable and that the listener accept it.
… and Beyond incorporates acoustic translations of astronomical phenomena and proposes an imaginary celestial aural journey from the perspective of the listener who voyages beyond the limit of our heliosphere and explores interstellar space.
… and Beyond was realized in 2014 at the Métamorphoses d’Orphée studio of Musiques & Recherches in Ohain (Belgium). Thanks to David Baltuch and Annette Vande Gorne.
