Text by Neuma Records:

"Music, since Ancient Greek times, has been called “number made audible.” Now, thanks to advances in technology beyond Plato's dreams (not to mention the invention of useful but non-existent numbers), we have what we might call, “The Harmony of the Hyperspheres. ”Imaginary spaces, complex algorithms, surfaces, colors, and shapes can all be described in terms of elegant and expressive equations. And those same qualities can be seen in images and heard as music.

Enter Spanish imaginer, Juan JG Escudero, an artist as familiar with theoretical physics as he is with a laptop or a piano. In his album release, Shapes of Inner Timespaces, eight of his acousmatic compositions introduce listeners to what life might be like in these places, as far removed from the worlds of Descartes as they are from Tron.

Whether the works began with a prerecorded sound or one that originated from computer synthesis, a wide variety of high level math techniques are sure to have been involved. Number made sensuous, even sensible.

You may have heard of Spectralism, the compositional use of harmonic analysis of the overtone series of certain soundsWell here, we are not talking about the spectrum of sounds, but rather of temporal sequences. Polyrhythms (and perhaps the durational structuring of Satie and Cage) to the nth degree. The inspiration, as Escudero says, comes from mathematical quasicrystals, a research field with great activity in the past decades. “Relations between aperiodic but ordered temporal sequences derived from tiling theory and harmonic fields arising from the mathematical analysis of such sequences have been explored. The descriptions of the tilings in terms of word sequences in formal grammars. have been significant in relation to musical form, providing a multidimensional space of textures and motivating organic links between musical materials at different temporal scales. ”

If the thought of Calabi-Yau hypersurfaces, the Pisot-Vijayaraghavan number, and the cohomology of aperiodic tiling spaces leave your head spinning, the music will not. Like any artistic experience, you will make your own sense of it and relish the chance to Spend time in an orderly yet fantastic multiverse.
