THE SPACING OF THE SPHERES is a collaboration of 3 Greek and 3 German artists.
It contains live music and digital visualization and aims to strengthen the historic bridge
between Greece and Germany and its fundamental axis within the context of Europe
and its cultural heritage (for ex. Pythagoras 㲗 Kepler).
Within this international dialogue the 6 participants work together on eyelevel. A deep
respect for each other’s work and artistry are the core of this collaboration.

Background

In 2017 (at the Plush-Music Festival at the LOFT, Cologne) the 5 musicians performed
together for the first time. As a result of this extraordinary experience, they started
thinking about a wider and long-term collaboration between artists from Greece and
Cologne / NRW – considering and refreshing their common historic and cultural roots.
As a result – and with the addition of a digital / visual aspect – the project THE SPACING
OF THE SPHERES was initialized. It is committed / refers to the idea of „Musica
universalis” (by Pythagoras), the book “Harmoni mundi” by Johannes Kepler and the
ideas of Hans Cousto (Cosmic Octave) ->see pdf „Historical context“)
Within the colaboration the group will elaborate harmonic, melodic and rhythmic
elements based and inspired by the above theories.
In addition, recent NASA recordings of radio wave emission of the Earth, Mars, Sun,
Moon etc. are implemented in the artistic process.
Based on this orbital perspective the group aims to develope and find a recent
(nowaday) aproach to this facinating topic. The actual process of preparations and
rehearsals is meant to be an open joint process where individual contributions lead to a
new common musical and visual composition. The result of this process is to be
performed for a larger audience in Athens in December 2019
