Clocked Out Duo creates new music with a sense of play and adventure.  They use prepared piano, percussion, found objects and toys to craft their trademark "warped grooves" and evocative soundscapes.  Drawing on a wide variety of influences from experimental, jazz, and world music, Clocked Out has played everywhere from Sydney Opera House to Roulette (New York) and Super Deluxe (Tokyo), collaborating with a wealth of creative musicians along the way. This evening they will perform Time Crystals. In February of 2012, Nobel-winning physicist Frank Wilczek posted an article proposing the existence of “time crystals,” perpetually moving structures that repeat periodically in the fourth dimension. In their newest composition, Clocked Out Duo explore perpetual motion, pattern, and crystalline structures in musical form. Using an intricately designed constellation of percussive and pianistic sounds, Erik Griswold and Vanessa Tomlinson create a kaleidoscope of shifting sound colors.
