Symphony 

for a Dying Star

September 2016

To help raise awareness of the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) telescope, we collaborated with the National Observatory of Japan to create the ALMA Music Box. Based on the radio signal data captured by the telescope from the dying star R Sculptoris, we produced 70 music discs that can be played on this customized music box. The resulting somber melody is the requiem to the distant dying star 950 light-years away. 

At the Kyoto Okazaki Loops Music Festival, the music box performed together with the Kyoto Symphony Orchestra in front of 2000 audiences in collaboration with 11 well-known musicians. My role in this project is to design the stage visuals and videos for the concert. The videos are meticulously rendered under the outer space themes including nebula, star trail time-lapse, galaxy, etc. The two-hour concert is an immersive mixture of astronomical art and different genres of music. ALMA Music Box has also been exhibited at various museums including 21_21 Design Sight, Kanazawa 21st Century Museum, and Ukraine Arsenal Museum.
