I8U’s 10-33 cm is a audio work of varied proportion and calculated shape. Based on the ideas associated with String Theory, this latest offering from Canada’s France Jobin is a compelling meditation on the nature of sound in time.
“10-33 cm is the theoretical size of the strings that makes up the universe.” Jobin explains,” Resonance is the vibrational pattern, which determines what kind of particle the string is, and thus the type of particle is the movement of the string and the energy associated with this movement.”
With 10-33 cm, Jobin creates a shimmering mirror that reflects on our somewhat limited understanding of these strings as they slip in and out of the dimensions we are aware of. More so, each of the pieces suggests a visionary ‘vibration chart’, that explores the possible resonances of these theoretic discourses. Through sound, I8U’s explorations of String Theory are made almost tactile – a refined bridge between rhetoric and creation.
I waited for this perhaps to long... This work ( I & II) are provocative AND compelling drone works that are packed with subtlety and nuance...Do not trust your first impressions, be patient as there are great rewards with deep listening. enjoy D-Jos.
