This piece examines time on the scale of the solar system, looking at the relationships between planetary days, months and years, compressed into eight two minute sections of video and audio.
The audio uses statistical data to create the backdrops. For example in one section a fast tremolo could relate to the passage of days, while a slower tremolo could represent the orbit of a moon. Alternatively, a group of moons could have the frequency of their orbital periods translated into a chord. In this way, soundscapes are built using timings from the planets themselves. Additional material is created from a found sound, conventional composition and improvisation.
The video shows the movement of the subjects within a period of approximately one month. The objects themselves are left blank, in order to allow the music to inform the viewer. The video provides the architectural structure while the audio provides the detail.
