Redshift

Space

Inspiration

When a light source moves away from an observer, the wavelength increases resulting in “redshift,” a transition toward the red end of the visible spectrum. Ever since the Big Bang, the universe has been expanding resulting in cosmological redshift as we view celestial objects according to the rate of increase of their distance from the point of observation. Redshift revolves perpetually around a sequence of four chords while constantly augmenting a simple rhythmic motive, emulating the the state of the universe after the Big Bang.

Elastic rhythmic proportions

Development of rhythm rather than harmony
