Why and how does music make us feel? How is music linked to speech? To language? A simultaneous artistic and scientific investigation, HOLD MUSIC takes us on a journey into a single thinker’s imaginative world of songs, theories, and memories. Mimicking musical structure, narratives intertwine to form a symphonic story about the way people listen–to the world around them as well as to each other. A man keeps getting things stuck in his head. A song. And then a memory. Now a woman. This woman wants to fall down. Drawing upon Einstein’s formulations of gravity, the project explores how a hunch becomes an idea, how an idea becomes a law, and how we listen and fall during a process of discovery.
