The Pleats of Matter

Aaron Cassidy (Composer)

Research output: Non-textual formComposition


The Pleats of Matter (2005-2007), which takes its title from the first chapter of Deleuze's The Fold (an investigation of the Baroque, Leibniz, and the monad), is a work that explores the nature of folds, bends, and pleats, and their concomitant implications of surplus, enveloping, collapsing, and obfuscation. It is a work in which overflowing trajectories of material and process collide, overlap, collapse, and slide, where strata melt and rupture and deform, and where form and shape are only the final byproduct of lines folding into one another, of shapes subsumed by other shapes, of forms twisted within other forms.
