This piece explores a state of being at the horizon of our ability to conceptualise infinities, characterised by Zeno’s paradoxes. There we encounter the dichotomies of micro-macro, inner-outer, dividual-individual, measurable-uncountable, atomisation-multiplication, iambic-trochaic. We taste the extreme spatial dimensions characterised by these opposing directions, until impossibility exhausts us. The piece was composed in 2008 for Nicolas Hodges, who performed it at Darmstadt that year.
