Taking place on Midsummer Common during the peak of the Perseid meteor shower, this unique event will invite you to lie back and open your eyes and ears to the wonder of the sky.
About the event:
Featuring immersive soundtracks by Sounds of Space Project and Cambridge-based artist Sarah Wood, this evening of silent disco skygazing will awaken your senses.
Stars are Fire, is an immersive sound piece by Cambridge-based artist, filmmaker, writer and curator Sarah Wood. After a time of necessary social isolation and when ideology and war bring questions of national borders sharply into focus, what better time to lie back and spend time together contemplating the possibilities of space and dreaming our shared future.
Celestial Incantations by Sounds of Space Project, is a collaboration between space weather scientist Dr Nigel Meredith of the British Antarctic Survey, multimedia artist Diana Scarborough and leading Australian composer Dr Kim Cunio. This fusion of art and science will feature a spectrum of space sounds collected from Earth, the solar system, and beyond, in composition with western and non-western instruments and voice.
