Cosmic Loops

: Music Beneath the Stars

As you soar through nebulas, galaxies, and star systems in the immersive space under the dome of the Charles Hayden Planetarium, live music with simple beginnings builds layer upon layer into an intricate universe of musical loops created by masters of an evocative style. Acoustic double-neck guitarist Ian Ethan fluidly combines a staggering variety of self-invented playing techniques necessitated by his multi-layered compositions, further expanded using real-time live looping technology.

Indulge in this rare quartet performance in which gongs and exotic percussion instruments from around the world take Ian's latest compositions into new dimensions, with the Planetarium team's transcendent visions overhead.

Tickets on sale beginning Thursday, January 28 (Tuesday, January 26 for Museum members).
