An Audiovisual Concert – Origins: Life and the Universe
On November 7, 2015, in Benaroya Hall, Seattle, Washington, an audiovisual concert was held paying tribute to some of the greatest discoveries made by astrobiologists, space scientists, and astronomers. The concert was a benefit for the scholarship program at the University of Washington Astrobiology Program and the Department of Astronomy and featured Grammy-award winning conductor David Sabee and the Northwest Sinfonia orchestra.
The symphonic concert was accompanied by projected high-resolution movies created using some of the most spectacular imagery, videos and conceptual art from the Hubble Space Telescope, NASA, the European Southern Observatory, the European Space Agency, and many other collaborating researchers across the globe.
Samples of each of the 8 pieces and their video accompaniment can be found at https://vimeo.com/138363170.
