About: GRIMEBORN: Aikainen

Aikainen [ˈɑikɑinen] = early, about time

We all know what time means, or even think that we’re able to describe what time is, but we fail if we really have to explain it. “What is time?” is one of the central philosophical questions since Seneca.

There is a strong connection between time and music. To recognize a melody as a melody (and not as a single tone), there has to be a reverberation in mind through time. This is where Aikainen begins: as a collection of remarks on and techniques of manipulation, in the shape of an experimental music theatre. In order to capture as many facets of time as possible, the different parts of Aikainen vary in style and language.

Time is the precondition for experience and no experience is conceivable outside of time. We all have the dirty dust of time on us. We all are aikainen.
