A Galaxy of Suns
Performance Friday 7 April 8.15pm

A Galaxy of Suns is a choral performance and associated smart phone app that ‘sings’ the stars as they rise and set for 360˚ of the horizon – for any location on Earth. Tracking the Earth’s motions through space, A Galaxy of Suns documents in real time the audience’s precise position in relation to the stars, using stellar data to create a sound and visual composition specific to their exact location in space and time. In a performance unique to Cementa17, a vocal chorus will sing the motions of the stars on opening night in an ethereal celebration of the cosmos. A Galaxy of Suns is presented in association with Experimenta Media Arts. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. A Galaxy of Suns is supported by the NSW Government through Arts NSW. Performance: 8.15pm Friday 7 April
