Time Crystals

In 2012 Nobel Prize winning physicist Frank Wilczek published the theoretical proof for a ‘time crystal,’ which extends the idea of a crystal to four dimensions. In his conception, a time crystal would comprise ‘a group of particles that move and periodically return to their original state, perhaps in a circle.’  This unusual structure could be in perpetual motion.  Inspired by this composer Erik Griswold started to musically explore themes of perpetual motion, pattern and crystalline structure – resulting in his 13-part concert piece Time Crystals. Using an intricately designed constellation of percussive and pianistic sounds, Griswold and Vanessa Tomlinson create a kaleidoscope of shifting sound colours.

‘Time Crystals was a timeless integration of minimalist ideas with contemporary classical performance style…engaging and fun.’ – Realtime Arts Magazine

Clocked Out, Ensemble in Residence at Queensland Conservatorium, have produced some of Australia’s most innovative contemporary music and interarts projects. Through their varied collaborations they have sought to bring together musicians, performers, artists and audiences from diverse backgrounds. By following their creativity to unexpected places, their work has explored the boundaries between musical styles and artistic disciplines.
