Monday, April 17th
Doors open at 6:30 PM
First speaker begins at 7 PM
Last month, LSU and the East Baton Rouge Parish Library cohosted Sounds of Science, a “transdisciplinary celebration of the creation of the universe.” At the center of this event was a performance of Makrológos—a musical interpretation of the evolution of the universe and of life on Earth—composed by David Walters, an international award-winning composer and a current Doctor of Musical Arts candidate at LSU.
This month’s edition of Astronomy on Tap-Baton Rouge will feature a panel on the inspiration and creation of Makrológos, followed by a talk on the physics and astronomy behind the music.
