UNO ES EL CUBO
Year of release: 1995
Keplerian fantasy on five perfect solids.
Two moments in Kepler’s life: at the age of six his mother took him to observe the 1577 comet; at the age of nine his father took him to observe a moon eclipse. Those are the first contacts that little Kepler had with the celestial world, premonitory moments of what his life’s principal passion will be: astronomy. The pass of that comet and the moon eclipse, followed by the “moon astronomy dreams”, open and close respectively this keplerian fantasy. It pays homage to Johannes Kepler (Weil-der-Stadt, 1571; Ratisbona, 1630).
Libretto of texts from Kepler, Newton, Plato, Pythagoras, Jamblic, Stoboi, Copernic and Ptolemy.
