Abstract

Experience the Science Museum after dark with a unique walk-through concert featuring six world-premiere performances.

Re-imagining Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an Exhibition' for the twenty-first century, Aurora Orchestra presents a series of new works, commissioned by NMC Recordings, exploring the Museum's world-renowned collection. Each is performed in the presence of the object or space which inspired its composition, including the London-York mail coach, Charles Babbage's Difference Engine, 2L0 (the BBC’s first radio transmitter), and the Flight Gallery.

Devised in collaboration with director Tim Hopkins (with whom Aurora staged its acclaimed 'Thriller' project in 2011), this is the first orchestral concert performance ever to take inspiration from our galleries.

Immerse yourself in a series of astonishing new musical sounds, and the creative imagination behind the objects that inspired them, as you’re guided from one location to another, through spaces intimate and mighty, functional and grand, to encounter wonders of visionary science in new artistic light.
