#imaginative #stimulating #thoughtprovoking musical evening thanks to @wethecurious_ and @LigetiQuartet #planets2018

@LeahZakss
Swept away by #Planets2018 new music at @WinSciCentre planetarium (new favourite place). Loved hearing from Prof Carl Murray @QMUL on composer mentoring and the extraordinary qualities of Saturn. Congrats @soundukarts & all involved. A treat for the ears. Mind truly boggled.

Mindblown - just back from #Planets2018 at @WinSciCentre. Sitting in the middle of a string quartet whilst whizzing around the Solar System. And being a total fanboi hearing from a Cassini imaging scientist about that amazing mission
