The ‘Sounds of Space’ project was showcased at Storey’s Field Centre, Eddington, on Friday 25th October as part of the Cambridge Festival of Ideas. Space weather scientist, Dr Nigel Meredith, explained the process of converting space radio waves to waveform audio and introduced the audience to the individual personalities of the ‘sounds’; ranging from the charming Earth ‘chorus’ to the imposing and Halloween-appropriate sounds of Saturn. Cambridge-based, artist-engineer Diana Scarborough then described the creation of the accompanying animated soundscapes, which combined the ‘sounds’ with original video sequences and music from leading Australian composer, Kim Cunio. The talks were followed by an experimental and interactive performance in which professional dancers Becky Byers and Felix Denton explored the soundscapes through contemporary dance. They moved amongst the audience as they responded to the sound-led, data-driven journey from Antarctica to beyond the galaxy.The final, frenetic piece of music and dance, featuring colliding neutron stars and merging black holes, was followed by a serene meditative experience featuring ‘sounds’ from the VLF receiver at Halley, images of the Antarctic and the beautiful piano music of Kim Cunio.
