Arts festival 9e2 leaves its base at King Street Station and heads downtown on Evening 7. DJ Spooky (Paul J. Miller) presents the west coast debut of his multimedia project The Hidden Code at Benaroya Hall on October 27, 2016.

From the press release:

Imagine a visual odyssey through the cosmos driven by lush musical compositions, and inspired by complex themes of astronomy, engineering, biology, and psychology. Miller composed the music for The Hidden Code based on conversations with Dartmouth physicists, astronomers, engineers, biologists, brain scientists and computer scientists. The work is a synthesis of emerging science, poetry, and music transformed into the ultimate fusion of art and science. Dartmouth Physicist and musician Stephon Alexander will be playing saxophone for the performance, and Miller and Alexander will conduct a Q&A after the show.

The music for The Hidden Code was commissioned by Dartmouth College’s Neukom Institute for Computational Science and its Director, Daniel Rockmore. The visuals for The Hidden Code were created by staff of the Charles Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Science in Boston. This work highlights the enabling power of computational science in the arts, inspiring an “album” that lives at the intersection of art and science, technology, engineering, and math.

This event will likely sell out, so don’t delay.
