This year’s Hesterian Musicism concert is an interdisciplinary "3-dimensional ritual story" that unfolds as electroacoustic music, dance, visual art, digital art, and spoken-word narrative. The latter element is coupled with a pre-recorded electronic score that merges with the visual art through digital video. Some of the musicians—ranging from Hong Kong pipa player Li Ge to Burkina-Faso dancer and griot Manjou Kone—will add various electronic components to their acoustic instruments alternately with their acoustic sounds.

Ages ago, in a primordial galaxy, a watery planet initially produced only microscopic particles. As consciousness gradually evolved and prospered in a fluid and balanced flow the most innovative particles confer and decide to explore the practice of frequency teleportation into inner-space (“afterlife”) – The Netherworld. The group called themselves Quantum Elders and eventually became successful in achieving their goals of transcendence. These ancient ancestors of humanity began millions of years ago to form a new migratory “Quantum World” centered voyages directed towards maintaining a fluid balance of universal forces. In their travel throughout quantum worlds they sought to restore balance, peace, beauty and harmony to Earth and other worlds. Thus, their mission strived towards oneness with all elements of the interconnected ecosystems that sustain life.
Thus, through sound, light, and spirit vibrations, trans-dimensional beings work to share their Divine Particle’s Vision as they acquired wisdom and eidetic knowledge of the necessity of interconnectivity, spiritual awareness, love, and fluid balance to assure cosmic self-sustainability. This is the basis of the “Divine Consanguinity” narrative.
