Featuring Stephon Alexander
Art into Science. Science into Music. Music into Art. Imagine a visual odyssey through the cosmos, driven by lush musical compositions and inspired by complex themes of astronomy, engineering, biology and psychology. This multisensory experience features stunning video projections created by Boston’s Charles Hayden Planetarium and an original score written and performed by DJ Spooky.
Paul D. Miller (aka DJ Spooky) composed the music for The Hidden Code based on conversations with several of Dartmouth's finest physicists, astronomers, engineers, biologists, brain scientists and computer scientists. The Hidden Code, originally commissioned by The Neukom Institute of Computational Science at Dartmouth College as a planetarium show, is now a multimedia proscenium show that represents the ultimate fusion of art and science.
This presentation of The Hidden Code is part of 9e2, a festival of art, science and technology. In addition to this performance at Benaroya Hall, 9e2 will be happening at King Street Station from October 21–29, 2016. The schedule includes performances, lectures and installations that feature artists, scientists and other visionaries exploring subjects like genetics, surveillance, biology, biochemistry, ecosystems, social media, data visualization and immersive environments like virtual and augmented reality.
NOTE: This Live @ Benaroya Hall program is presented by the Seattle Symphony and by 9e2.
