Almost the entirety of the vast macrocosm remains beyond our reach. The universe, planet earth, complex societies, ourselves–are all macrocosms made by smaller structures and systems, but are essentially large-scale reproductions of its smaller structures. How can we analyze our microcosmic systems, to better realize our place in the larger macrocosm? What place do we individuals have in the manipulation of our own microcosmic roles?
Ensemble Aabat’s Makrokosmos is the second concert in a two-part series to relate smaller musical structures and scenes, to a larger, collective, self-reflective world.
The first concert, Mikrokosmos, as a part of Pakt’s “Flash Back, Flash Forward” musical evening in December 2017, took place outdoors and sought out the exploration of four small musical worlds. Makrokosmos will combine four performers in six separate musical and visual worlds into one shared space, in order to find a common order as one collective whole. The evening will be made up of creations, premiers, and concepts that involve many differing mediums including but not limited to: video projection, object theater, sculpture performance, new music, and vocal expression.
