1999: Various: Enhanced Gravity

[Sleevenotes] Around the year 1687 an unknown artist drew this theatrical illustration about Sir Isaac Newton's theory and law of gravitation (see cover). He titled the nine different variations of gravity as following: A. Absolute Gravity - B. Against Absolute Gravity - C. Partial Gravity - D. Comparative Gravity - E. Horizontal, or Good Sense - F Wit - G. Comparative Levity - H. Partial Levity - I. Absolute Levity, or Stark Fool. This CD represents a ascientific / dadaistic or at least a humourous view to this unique piece of contemporary satire. After about two years of work you will be able to enjoy the results of this research in form of nine music pieces and in the form of a full illustrated multimedia part. This virtual booklet gives you a deep view in physics (or metaphysics) and visualisation of these forms of gravity. Also included is information about the individual participating artists and about this project.
