Our Star Will Die Alone: Interactive Metal
Our Star Will Die Alone is part of an interactive presentation by Project Plantaria, a collaboration of UCSD faculty and graduate students from the Departments of Physics, Theatre & Dance, and Visual Arts.
A collection of local experimental musicians and physics enthusiasts will be transforming the captivating saga of staricide into a death metal performance in UCSD’s Galbraith Hall South.
“It's pretty interesting, because there are many ways to interpret/sonify data,” says musician Bobby Bray, who will be sonically projecting star death alongside UCSD faculty members Michael Trigilio, Adam Burgasser, and Tara Knight.
The collective “investigates ways of exploring astronomical phenomena and information outside traditional modes, by engaging multiple senses, embodying experience, exploring social analogs, breaking down time and space barriers, and incorporating participatory behaviors. Data-driven performance, trans sensory transformation, architectural mapping, and metaphor are all tools we are using to better understand the Universe and our place within it.”
