In their concerts, We Spoke wish to facilitate the interaction of music with other facets of the human imagination. This is also the starting point of “Phenomena”. The collaboration of the composers Ezko Kikoutchi, Barblina Meiherhans, Chloé Bieri, and the scientist and chemist Richard-Emmanuel Eastes offers an intimate encounter between music and science, from which emerges the feeling of discovery and the understanding of an approach common to the researcher and the artist.
“Phenomena” is performed by We Spoke’s five musicians and the scientist Richard-Emmanuel Eastes. It reveals the poetic nature of research. With science as well as with art, research’s inherent beauty is crystallised in the expression of a hypothesis, in experimentation, in doubt and in serendipity.
The programme reveals to which extent musical pieces are connected to the creative processes they emerge from. Ezko Kikoutchi’s composition uses a brainwaves detection handset, Barblina Meierhans’s piece utilises human DNA for sheet music, Chloé Bieri reveals the sounds of synthetic biology and chemical gardens and Hanna Hartmann looks at the electronic treatment of sonic and chemical experiences.
These three interdisciplinary creations aim to reconstruct reality and celebrate the poetry and beauty of questioning.
