Since March 2020 the world has run at a different pace, shifting our experience of time. Does this mean we perceive time as compressing or as expanding? And how do we spend the time we have? Oblique Time examines this changing perception of time. Pianist Helena Basilova, sound designer Salvador Breed and visual artist Nick Verstand explore the theme time in a unique amalgamation of live piano music, spatial sound and light art.
As we are all facing current situation, first of all I’m hoping that most of you are in good health, as well as are your beloved ones and family. Last month and weeks have been complicated times, in many respects, but I’m hoping that the time for reflection and introspection will bring all of us something fruitful in return.
A question that still needs to find more answers is how we as artists can connect with the world in times that force us to isolate and in times when we are not able to go on stage? How can we share the experience of music and how can we still create and connect while being so far apart?
On December 6th 08:00 AM Helena will give a special performance at the Oude Kerk Amsterdam. She will play Morton Feldman’s Triadic Memories at the new exposition Poems of Earthlings by Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas.
