Tickets for the 7:30pm of Mary’s synesthesia-inspired concert at the Charles Hayden Planetarium on Thursday, April 4th have sold out; so the Museum of Science Boston has added a second show at 9:00pm for the same date. Tickets for this new 9:00PM show can be purchased via the following link (because the 7:30pm sold out so quickly, it is anticipated that the 9:00pm show will sell out as well, so we highly recommend obtaining tickets in advance!):
Presented in partnership with Museum of Science Boston, The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Arizona State University; this one-night-only immersive musical experience will feature live performances of Mary’s compositions paired with stunning visuals directly inspired by her polymodal synesthesia, allowing audience members to “hear” color and “see” sound just as Mary does when she listens to music. Most exciting of all, the visuals for this latest concert in the series will be presented in two exciting and innovative forms: a collection of dazzling 360-degree videos created by the Museum’s award-winning artistic team for the Planetarium’s fulldome, as well as an entirely new synesthesia-displaying LED-based technology (including interactive LED synesthesia costumes!) created by the renowned scientists of MIT Media Lab and ASU’s SciHub especially for this concert. Entitled the HyLighter, this new technology will be created under the direction of theoretical physicists Frank Wilczek (Nobel laureate and Herman Feshbach Professor of Physics) and Nathan Newman (Lamonte H. Lawrence Professor in Solid State Science). The Planetary Quartet performers for this show will be the wonderful Sonia Deng (violin), Anna Stromer (viola I), Dominick Douglas (viola II), and Timothy Paek (cello).
And, as always, more information on this show can be found on the Performances page.
Thank you so much to one and all, and looking forward to April 4th!
