Release: Ptolemaic Model

Performed September 26, 2019 by Christina Ruf and Bernhard Wöstheinrich in Berlin

When ancient astronomers viewed the sky, they saw the Sun, Moon, and stars moving overhead in a regular fashion. The ancients worked from a geocentric perspective for the simple reason that the Earth was where they stood and observed the sky, and it is the sky which appears to move while the ground seems steadfast underfoot.

Initialized and guided by Erik Emil Eskildsen, Christina and Bernhard met in Berlin for an extensive recording session.

Out of their both very lavish musical universes, they cautiously approached each other, concluding in a massive and powerful dialogue.

In their respective ways of creating music, both are circling around their own center, but the gravitational forces between them left them orbiting around a common centerpoint in the space between their worlds.

The interplay of the phenomena of the world can be overwhelming and unsettling. What an effort to try to explain the universe if starting from the premise that oneself is the epicenter!
