Seizing time

“What then is time?” wondered Augustine of Hippo. “If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know.”

The present, the past, the future... Basic material for the composer, an object of study for the researcher... Everyone, in their way, watches time pass by, measures it, observes it, uses it. Yet the question remains: what then is time?

We dedicate this 2018 edition of the Art & Science Days to sound and visual / scientific and imaginary time.
