How to hear the universe in a spider/web (31 December 2020)

How to hear the universe in a spider/web: A live concert for/by invertebrate rights


It is only by banding together to explore the new threads of connectivity woven so tightly into the fabric of our universe that we may communicate the urgency of our project. A transdisciplinary research collaboration together with Studio Tomás Saraceno, the Arachnophilia community and with Stavros Katsanevas at the European Gravitational Observatory; Peggy S. M. Hill, researcher in biotremology from the University of Tulsa; and groundbreaking sonic astrophysicist Wanda Díaz-Merced, who after losing her sight at age 20 began hearing the stars.

And featuring the contribution of Nobel Prize-winning experimental physicist Barry Barish, whose work with LIGO brought about the first direct detection of gravitational waves. With vibrations from the universe and the Arachnophilia community, this concert is a performance for all beings. It is about breaking our cultivated phobias, and learning from our closest co-habitants to sense the entanglements of the cosmic/web.
