I spent the last weeks into the study of the Book of Changes and I found out some interesting relationships between this system and the musical systhem. The I-ching (book of changes) is an ancient chinese divinatory tool used in the court of the kings of China, based on 64 signs, each of them contains a sort of archetipical situation. The way of picking up a sign is very connected to the phaenomena of synchronicity between you, your mind, here and now.. (see Calr Gustav Jung) so if you have a deep question to ask directly to the Universe, you have some probability to get a deep answer.
I’ll invite you all to hear my musical interpretation of some of the 64 hexagrams of the I-Ching transposed to music.
This event will be part of the Greenhouse go Upperground Open Studio Days on the 29 of december 2015, 1st floor, room 106. Gottlieb-Dunkel Str 43-44, Berlin
