Young Astronomer by Beau Sievers published on 2009-11-26T17:01:00Z ICMC 2009 talky talky blurb blurb: Young Astronomer is a dialogue of saturated volumes. Tiny spaces—the cup of the hand, the cavity of the mouth—are pressed against the audio machinery of laptop computers, forming hybrid feedback systems which are methodically driven past the threshold of distortion. Spaces appear, grow, revolve and recede, engaging and warping listeners’ senses of movement and scale. Each space bleeds into the others, enabling the emergence of a continously deforming network of orbital behaviors. The birth and death of this network—like some massive, distant star—contains the hope of seeing the very large in the very small, and the very small in the very large.
