“The Sound of Science” featuring Kronos Quartet Cellist

Commissioned by Austin-based Golden Hornet, The Sound of Science will be a concert and album presenting eight pieces of music by seven celebrated composers. Written for amplified cello and electronics, all pieces will be performed by world-renowned cellist Jeffrey Zeigler, long time member of Kronos Quartet, cellist for John Zorn, Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, and many more. The Sound of Science will premiere in New York City Fall of 2018, followed by performances in Austin, Mexico City, and beyond.

Paired with scientists of their own choosing, composers will create music inspired by and reflective of the scientist’s life and practice. The Sound of Science will build bridges between the musical and scientific worlds, celebrating their shared culture of inquiry. Graham will be writing two pieces of music based on the work of neuroscientist Kristen Harris and environmental biologist Barry Chernoff. Learn more about all the composers and scientists here.
