THE DRONE AND THE UNIVERSE
Featuring LYREBIRD (Matt Darriau and Katie Down)
at Cornelia Street Cafe
Primal sounds are never boring. They are often the foundation, both of musics and of the universe. In tonight’s program two superlative musicians, masters of dozens of instruments both familiar and strange, Katie Down and Matt Darriau, will demonstrate the importance of drones in world music. And reflect on the centrality of this harmonic effect. They will be joined by Solomon Endlich, who works on the ripples through the fabric of the universe – gravitational waves. Just like we can close our eyes, listen to the sound that fills the room and try to figure out what those sounds tell us about the instruments that made them, so too can astronomers/physicists "listen" to gravitational waves and try to learn about some of the most cataclysmic (and not easily visited!) events in the universe -- black hole collisions, the big bang. Those waves may just be the drones of cosmic music. You will be there to feel them.
