Description: by Daniel Swilley. Program Note: Absolute Zero is concerned with the “life” of the constituent particles of matter as they reach the invisible bonds of absolute zero. Absolute Zero (noun) – the lowest temperature that is theoretically possible, at which the particle constituents of matter do not move or have minimal motion. Imagine these particles as “life forms.” Consider the crowds, the struggle, and the panic that would be the result of such a event as absolute zero. Imagine yourself rebelling against the approaching bonds of cold.
Absolute Zero was produced using Csound, Absynth, and Protools, and was realized in the Experimental Music Studios at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
