When the person (Latin: per-sonare - which means sounding through), is in tune with the cosmos, ...
... the cosmos resonates in the person.
Through the law of the octave it is possible to convert our whole solar system into sound.
The tracks of this EP are tuned to the frequencies of the moon and the planet mercury. These are the 29th and 30th octaves or exponents of the orbits of the moon and the planet mercury respectively.
A frequency or a tone to which you can tune a track is nothing more than an occurrence measured per seconds (hz) and an orbit of a planet or moon is an occurrence, measured from our point of view, per days. This means that frequencies and orbits can be linked, and this is done through the law of the octave.
Opticks is tuned to the mathematical translation of the color spectrum into sound. The spectrum of visible light for humans is precisely in the space of one musical octave and the colours fall roughly in a Major tone scale. Hence the name as an ode to the lesser known panpsychist and mystical side of Newton who was very aware of this and wrote about it extensively.
In a way you can see these tracks as acoustical exponents from our natural cosmic surroundings and our focus on them can bring us into harmony with the greater mathematical system that is present in the essence of things.
These tracks tune you to the cosmos. Use these powerful frequencies to let the cosmos sound through you. Because remember, you, you are the cosmos, experiencing itself from within.
