DESCRIPTION
Critical essays and interviews in this volume reveal the significance and intricacies of time and particularly how we experience it. Time is a complex and ambiguous concept. Relativity theorists and quantum mechanics have tinkered with the seemingly unambiguous concept of time since the beginning of the previous century. Art, film and music make abstract notions of time tangible and comprehensible, and manipulate how we experience it. The ongoing development and implementation of technology constantly challenge, change and undermine our perception of time. This book is, in a sense, a homage to the human experience of time. One half of this anthology consists of articles and essays dealing with conceptions and imaginings of time in the fields of technology, culture, and literature. The other half collects interviews with composers and performing musicians, concerning their intimate knowledge of working with time.
