Doc/Fest: Sounds of the Cosmos
As part of the 2015 Sheffield Doc/Fest, a performance of Sounds of the Cosmos took place at the Crucible Theatre on 9 Jun 2015, in collaboration with creative producer Stewart Campbell (Dept of Music), that involved a live performance of Gustav Holst's Planets Suite by the Sheffield Rep. Orchestra conducted by George Morton, interspersed with short astronomy talks, plus reworked visuals by local design agency Human (courtesy of financial support by STFC).
In addition, a panel discussion "The Making of.." took place within the Doc/Fest Ideas and Science strand (sponsored by Wellcome Trust) involving Stewart Campbell, Vanessa Toulmin, Nick Bax, George Morton and myself (see above).
Immediate feedback (via twitter) to Sounds of the Cosmos included the following:
