      Composer Cosmology

      Listen to the Program

      As astrophysicists like Neil deGrasse Tyson learn more about the cosmos and present their often strange and wondrous findings to the public, the creative mind can’t help but be captivated and inspired, and composers are certainly no exception. From super strings to quarks, multiple dimensions to M theory, we’ll play several imaginative works by composers captivated by our universe.

        Thanks for this!

        I love mixing art with science. I am a college writing instructor and visual artist. My husband Bob is a planetary astronomer who looks for near-earth asteroids.

        Good job!
