"Entropy; an electric space show! Inspirational in so many ways. "
The latest incarnation of Dopplereffekt founder Heinrich Meuller’s experimental physics crazed mind, Entropy is an immersive audiovisual journey through the history of our universe and its stars. The performance features original music composed by Dopplereffekt, lectures by astronomers Dr. Dida Markovic and Dr. Zaz Magic, and visualizations of real astronomical data by Antivj and a community of artist-coders led by Elie Zananiri.
Entropy is one of those truly unique projects that only comes around once in a lifetime. Conceived by Dopplereffekt founder and Drexciya member Gerald Donald, Entropy is an immersive hour-long audiovisual performance that is part sonic exploration, part visual odyssey and part scientific lecture. Taking you on a cosmic journey through time and space, Entropy weaves talks by astronomers Dr. Dida Markovic and Dr. Zaz Magic, visualizations of real astronomical data by digital arts collective Antivj and creative coder Elie Zananiri, and a live musical score by sonic pioneers Dopplereffekt into a gripping trans-disciplinary narrative. It pieces together the latest discoveries in cosmology and stellar astrophysics to tell the epic life story of the universe and its stars. The world premiere of Entropy at TodaysArt 2016 is presented in collaboration with Sónar and Insomnia Festival as part of We are Europe.
This project is presented in the framework of We are Europe by Insomnia Festival and Sónar Festival.
