Tales of Entropy

Tales of Entropy stages the irresistible beauty and the poetry of an organic compound changing its physical state in a thermal gradient, under polarized light. As the thermodynamic conditions evolve, the compound gradually evolves from crystal, to liquid-crystal, to liquid, before recrystallisation and re- orientations, displaying striking color patterns with a profound dramatic effect. The choreography of matter on this video happens live over the space of 1mm of the entire sample.

UPCOMING : TALES OF ENTROPY | SECOND ITERATION | 15.05.2021 – 20:00

Coming up on Saturday 15th May 2021, Tales of Entropy will be presented at See U in Brussels, for its second iteration, in the framework of a DAS HAUS residency, a new nomadic performance and workspace for innovative classical music practices in Brussels. Working with ground-breaking flemish ensemble Boho Strings, the story-telling capacity of our organic compounds will be pushed to another trajectory, in an immersive and itinerant format with a live string quartet.

 This recording of the first iteration at Pilar brings together live microscopic images from Guillaume Schweicher with the deep and emotional ambient soundscapes of Brussels-based artist Juanita, under the artistic direction of Nicolas Klimis.
