Description

Inspired by phenomenons of astrophysics, Infinite Hour questions the meaning of life, love, and spirituality in the context of the unknown and the impermanent. In lieu of answers, there is music, evoking the gradual nature of space/time expansion and the dark undertone of these questions. Infinite Hour was premiered by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus Men’s Ensemble, with conductor Kristopher Burke, in March 2018.
