Wright’s ‘Every 5 Minutes’ shows, with a degree of artistic licence, how fast the world’s population is growing according to currently available, 2013, statistics. Based on these numbers the video depicts, in real time, the average number of births and deaths that will occur in any five minutes. 1,246 births and 523 deaths. With the accompanying music Wright has allotted quarter notes to represent births in C major and half notes in the bass to represent deaths, in C Minor. The piece is played at 60 quarter notes per minute.
