The Sound of Science | THE BRAIN
The Sound of Science - the musical result of a collaboration between Graham Reynolds' Golden Hornet composer laboratory, world-renown cellist Jeffery Zeigler, and seven distinguished composers - is a collection of eight musical celebrations of science across the spectrum. Inspired directly by research findings and the life of the scientists behind them, The Sound of Science is carried by National Sawdust Tracks, and is set to tour the U.S. and Mexico in 2019.
The first track on The Sound of Silence explores neuroscience, aptly named "The Brain." Composed by Graham Reynolds, this piece draws inspiration from the work of learning and memory-neuroscientist Kristen Harris. Harris' lab studies the hippocampus - the memory center of the brain - and was one of the first labs to develop computer-assisted techniques to analyze the three-dimensional structure of neuronal synapses.
"The Brain" - the music video - presents visuals from Harris' research. Watch the video above, and learn more about The Sound of Science here.
