A Galaxy of Suns is a spectacular 36-part choir performance that ‘sings’ the stars as they rise and set over 360˚ of the horizon. Tracking the Earth’s motions through space, the work documents in real-time the audience’s precise position in relation to the stars, sonifying stellar data in a unique celebration of the majesty and beauty of the cosmos.

Operating on a galactic scale this project is a collaboration across contemporary art, music, astronomy and design. A Galaxy of Suns works with the native potentials of smart device technology to create a unique experience of the cosmos accessible to audiences wherever they find themselves in the world.

Using GPS data, the project works with parameters such as location on the horizon, brightness, size, age and chemical composition of stars, and translates them into sonic and aesthetic variables including rhythm, pitch, volume, panning, colour and light intensity. Whilst it creatively interprets science, A Galaxy of Suns is not an illustrative, literal or educational translation of data. Rather, it is a celebration of beauty and wonder at the ultimately inaccessible and intangible nature of the stars.

Featuring award winning local choir, Oriana Choir.
