A cross-discipline creative endeavor
sparking curiosity and opening doors of understanding for the 

creators and audience alike.


The sound of science is building bridges between the musical and scientific worlds.

At its foundation, eight pieces of music written by composers from around the world. Paired with scientists of their own choosing, composers make music inspired by and reflective of the individual's scientific practice. Each piece, written for amplified cello and electronics, will be performed by Jeffrey Zeigler, long time member of Kronos Quartet, cellist for John Zorn, Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, and many more. 

The unique collaboration will premiere in New York City Fall of 2018, followed by performances in Mexico City, Austin, and beyond.
