Our Place in Space - Meteors on Midsummer: Silent Disco Skygazing

Sat 13 August

Midsummer Common

Featuring immersive soundtracks by Sounds of Space Project and Cambridge-based artist Sarah Wood, this evening of silent disco skygazing will awaken your senses.

Celestial Incantations by Sounds of Space Project, is a collaboration between space weather scientist Dr Nigel Meredith of the British Antarctic Survey, multimedia artist Diana Scarborough and leading Australian composer Dr Kim Cunio. This fusion of art and science will feature a spectrum of space sounds collected from Earth, the solar system, and beyond, in composition with western and non-western instruments and voice.

Bring your own blanket, collect your headphones, lie back on the ground and let the meteor-streaked sky be your screen for a surreal sound experience.

Please arrive by 9pm to leave enough time to collect your headphones. You could also begin your evening with a sunset guided cycle ride of the solar system. Click here for more information and to book.

This event is due to finish at 10.45pm.

Cost: Free
