Light Years / Dark Matter

Light Years / Dark Matter

Light Years / Dark Matter draws inspiration from a variety of space-related themes including black holes, gravitational waves, planetary motion of our solar system, density of the inner rings of Saturn, and dreams of space travel.

Originally written as a large-scale multi-movement work co-composed by the members of TorQ Percussion Quartet, this performance explores the same themes in an including never-before-seen footage of their performance.

The theme of Light Years/Dark Matter, is an exploration of the dichotomies that seem to be inherent in speaking about the cosmos: "light" versus "dark", "time" versus "space", and the contrast and overlap of the science of the stars against the mythology of the constellations.
