'6849' is a composition that explores the idea of perception of time using polyrhythm. According to Einstein’s general theory of relativity, time is not absolute. Clocks run faster on mountain peaks than sea level. There is no single beat that we all revolve around. The concept that time is a constant beat is merely an invention of human measurement of time. '6849' paradoxically use a constant measurement of musical duration to shift perception, demonstrating the idea of time as not absolute.
This Zine recreates, in visual form, the original composition '6849’ through a different medium, including data visualization, coding, and musical score. The result investigate the perception of a variety of independence pulses within the same duration.
