Devine billiards or in the search for the lost particle
Looking for the answers to the eternal questions like are “How has this world come to be and who has created it?” a man tried to explain them through the history by different assumptions and theories. If we stop at the scientifically recognized theory of “The Big bang” then we would have to stay enthusiastic about the way of originating of something so harmonious from the general chaos, being based on the laws of nature like this world is.
Because of the actual stories and Maya prediction’s calendar related to the forthcoming Doomsday or in better words “to the new era of the human civilization”, I started the adventure of telling the story of the origin of the Universe and Life on the earth by music and various sounds and murmurs. The sound structure is formed by associative stream over the choice of the music material, audio patchwork of one game of billiards being added by sound recordings of artificially caused “Big Bang” in the labs of European Organization for Nuclear Research ( CERN) In Geneva and the live performing on demanded theme.
Collisions on various levels are those that connect the “Big Bang”, sports game – billiards and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) as a heart of the biggest experiment in the history of human beings. It has started with collisions of planets, asteroids, comets, continued with hits of billiard ball through real and virtual game, and nowadays we came to collisions of proton particles and maybe the most significant discovery of boson and elementary particle what everything originated from. With varied wiring for sound of the pool table as the microcosms, the interesting sound picture has been got which presents just one of segments of the whole sound matrix on which several artists, depending on the roles, live perform their jam session performance.
