With Special Update from MIT: The Search for Life on Venus and Beyond with Dr. Clara Sousa-Silva

Multiverse is an interdisciplinary concert and event series combining music and science in live performance. After a sold-out smash performance of Hidden Worlds in the Charles Hayden Planetarium last fall, and two groundbreaking digital events this summer, the Museum teams up with Multiverse once again for a new virtual event this fall to celebrate the release of their new album Octave of Light!

Octave of Light is a full-length album of exoplanet music by composer David Ibbett. David has sonified (light->sound) their spectra into a musical language of molecules and exoplanets, woven into music for live ensemble. Soprano Beth Sterling, violinist Amelia Sie, and the composer on piano/electronics are accompanied by stunning astrophysics visuals created by the Charles Hayden Planetarium's animation team.

The musicians are joined by Guest Scientist Dr. Clara Sousa-Silva, who will take us on a journey from the beginnings to the future of exoplanet science, including her own cutting-edge research at MIT and the recent discovery of phosphine on Venus!

Will chemical combinations be the key to discovering life on another world?
