featuring Jeffrey Zeigler
Fusebox is excited to present the Texas premiere of Golden Hornet's The Sound of Science as part of the 2019 Fusebox Festival.
The Sound of Science is a full-length concert and album of eight brand-new pieces of music by seven celebrated international composers. Written for amplified cello and electronics, it 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 composers selected an array of scientific minds which intrigued them musically and represented a range of research that has shaped humanity as a whole. All eight new works are inspired by and reflective of the scientist’s practice, and in some cases, even incorporate sounds sourced directly from their research. The Sound of Science brings the two disciplines together in a celebration of their shared culture of inquiry, and invites audiences to explore the importance of - and connections between - different kinds of creation and discovery in the quest for a deeper understanding of the world around us and each other. Co-curated by Jeffrey Zeigler and acclaimed composer-bandleader Graham Reynolds.
The Sound of Science album will be available in November.
This work will premiere in New York City in Fall of 2018, followed by performances at Fusebox Festival April 17 -21, 2019, Mexico City, and beyond.
