Vibrations – Bethel Woods Center for the Arts
Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, Bethel, New York, United States
Fifty years after the moon landing, renowned speaker and Grammy-winning composer Eric Whitacre presents Deep Field, a powerful new piece of music inspired by the Hubble Space Telescope, the world’s most famous space observatory, and its greatest discovery, the iconic Deep Field image. The new film illuminates the score by combining Hubble’s stunning imagery with bespoke animations to create an immersive, unforgettable journey from planet Earth to the furthest edges of our universe.
Whitacre will be joined in discussion by NASA’s Dr. Michelle Thaller and the Space Telescope Science Institute’s Dr. Frank Summers. Following the film screening and discussion, Whitacre and panelists will host a meet and greet and CD signing.
The New York premiere of Deep Field will take place on the same weekend as Bethel Woods’ Lunar Weekend, where there will be immersive family-friendly activities, from a star-gazing sleepover, to rocket launching and an inflatable planetarium.
