Form and Harmony in Cosmos and Life

Form and Harmony in Cosmos and Life

A three-and-a-half-day workshop led by Hartmut Warm.

“The profoundest and loftiest feeling of which we are capable is the experience of the mysterious. From this alone true science can emerge.” - Albert Einstein



In the sustaining fluidity of the atmosphere and hydrosphere of our Earth as it circles the sun… we find ourselves, alive and aware, permeated and surrounded by harmonious, formative movements…



As the New York philosopher Thomas Nagel put it: 

“Each of our lives is a part of the lengthy process of the universe gradually waking up and becoming aware of itself.”


Emerson College is privileged to welcome Hartmut Warm and Gregers Brinch in the last week of October 2017 (half term week for many). Hartmut will be presenting his uniquely insightful awareness of the cyclic movements of our Earth and the accompanying planets of our solar system in relation to one another. For example, the image linked with this webpage has been calculated by Hartmut to make visible the relative movements of Venus, Mars and Neptune over a period of 357 years.

Hartmut will be collaborating in this three-and-a-half-day workshop with the composer Gregers Brinch, who will guide experiences of music through singing, sounding strings and listening, Daniel Docherty, who will introduce hands-on geometrical exercises, and Philip Kilner, who will explore phenomena of rhythm and fluidity in relation to their organic and cosmic counterparts. 



The times of the meeting will be as follows:


Tuesday 24th               10.00 am – 5.30pm

Wednesday 25th       9.00 am – 5.30 pm

Thursday 26th              9.00 am – 5.30 pm

Friday 27th                 9.00 am – 12.30


Each morning will begin with a presentation of about 45 minutes prepared by Hartmut, followed by musical experiences led by Gregers, with singing and listening to musical phenomena with reference to Hartmut's themes. After a coffee break, the contributors will initiate an illustrative, interactive exchange, leading into conversation among all participants.

Afternoon sessions (2.30-4.00), introduced by one or more of the contributors, will be participatory and creative, on the themes of form, rhythm and harmony, followed by a reflective forum after tea (4.30-5.30).

There may be optional evening activities such as singing, music or related film offerings.
