7 September 2015

1) What was it that drew you to the object in the Science Museum that you picked for this project?

Its appearance.

2) Is there a certain musical effect/technique you have used to help bring this object/space to life?

Rhythm and colour.

3) Your piece is going to be premiered at the Science Museum in October in a unique walk-through concert with Aurora Orchestra. What are you most looking forward to about this event?

Everything. The performance, the atmosphere and the acoustic.

4) What is the value of a project like this linking two disciplines (science & music)? Can one enhance the appreciation of the other?

Science can invent, music can reveal.

5)  What bit of science/technology could you not live without?
