The Science Sonification and Composition Project is a new collaboration at Northwestern University that partners scientists with composers from the Bienen School of Music. The goal is to create and perform new music compositions inspired by cutting-edge scientific research at Northwestern. This collaboration was developed in 2016 by musician-scientists Eric Schwenker and Kyle Kremer as part of Kyle's Cosmos in Concert initiative through Northwestern's Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics (CIERA).
