Polytempo Music

Have you ever wanted to go inside a piece of music and look around? Welcome to “Polytempo Music”, a journey into the multiverse of sounds and the dimensions of listening. This work is not just music; it's a three-dimensional exploration of sound where music is fundamental to the experience. The composition features multiple tempos running in parallel, creating simultaneous timelines much like the many-worlds interpretation of quantum theory.

The piece offers a novel experience of music as a physical entity in 3D space, where sound moves around leaving a visual imprint of its journey. This "liquid architecture," as described by animator John Whitney, transforms the listening experience into an interactive exploration. Listeners wearing VR goggles can navigate through this musical landscape, experiencing changes in sound based on their movement relative to the instrument speakers.
