Matrix441 at the Art & Science Days Bourges
25 – 29 June 2018, Médiathèque de Bourges, Bourges, France
Musinfo organizes every year the Art & Science Days, giving different disciplines the opportunity to cross and interact during an annual meeting around a theme explored through a scientific and a musical perspective. The meeting is built around concerts, conferences, installations, exhibitions and workshops. It has a dual objective: on the one hand, to support the work of researchers, composers and musicians, and on the other hand, to offer the public various events.
2018 edition of the Art & Science Days is dedicated to sound and visual / scientific and imaginary 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?
