This coming Monday, I am going on an adventure with Matthew and our friend Laura. We are going to see Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner and Nico Muhly perform at the Opera House as part of the Sydney Vivid Festival. Whoo!
This image came from the Vivid website.
I hope it’s OK to use here – I figure I am helping with promotion!
The music they will play is all newly commissioned and, I hear, has been inspired by planets in the solar system. Maybe even stars and things beyond the solar system!
I am incredibly excited and I’m psyching myself up even more, getting my head into a celestial space, by listening to music about space and the planets.
So far I have listened to Holst’s The Planets. I need to think a little bit harder so I have more music to listen to in preparation over the weekend!
What other music should I be listening to, to evoke cosmic thoughts? Any ideas? Any style of music is good!
