Lei Liang with Mivos Quartet


Date: 2022-10-15to
Time: 8:00 pm
Location: Conrad Prebys Music Center, UC San Diego


UC San Diego Chancellor’s Distinguished Professor, composer and QI Research Artist in Residence Lei Liang has been collaborating with Scripps oceanographers John Hildebrand and Joshua Jones in exploring the sound of the Chukchi Sea in the Arctic—one of the most inaccessible places to humans on earth. The resulting composition, "Six Seasons," combines the sound of the ambient environment (ice, waves, wind), its inhabitants (beluga whales, bowhead whales, bearded seals)—captured by hydrophones deployed at the sea floor—and creative response from one of the world’s leading contemporary music string quartets, Mivos Quartet.
