You have no doubt heard the sayings: “Time is of the essence.” “Time flies.” “Time is money.” We are a society obsessed with time, yet we are unable to slow it, stop it, or make it rewind…unless we explore Einstein’s theories…but that is another show!
Our fascination with time has led to the development of varying methods of keeping track of its passage. We have gone from monumental clocks on watchtowers to small watches on our wrists. We have created clocks to wake us in the morning, program our microwave ovens and record television programs while we are away.
Chronometry is a musical journey about three of the most visual methods of time keeping.
