lost and safe

A moment held eternal.

Time continues to change its meaning. Listening to a Radiolab program about the apparent stretching and contracting of time. The show referrences Beethoven’s ninth symphony played over a period of 24-hours.

This Raudio Special brings you, as a continuous 24/7 audio webstream, ‘9 Beet Stretch’ by idea-based artist Leif Inge. ‘9 Beet Stretch’ is a recording of Ludwig van Beethoven’s ninth symphony stretched to 24 hours, without pitch distortion. We started the stream on saturday may 7th, 2005, at 20h15 (the moment of sunset (local time) in Vienna, Austria, where Beethoven’s ninth symphony was first performed, on may 7th, 1824).

I am reminded of William Basinski’s Disintegration Loops.  Decay, time, flowing.
