Music at Extreme Conditions

Music at Extreme Conditions (1 pm, 17th November 2011, CSEC Seminar Room). On the 17th of November there is another chance to hear In Extremiswritten by the composer Julian Wagstaff. This KB premier will be held in CSEC as this piece of music was inspired by the work that is carried out here in the centre. The work is in three movements, the first movement is inspired by Dr Olga Degtyareva's work on the high pressure phases of sulfur, the second movement inspired by Dr John Loveday's work on methane hydrates on Saturn's largest moon Titan, and the third movement is a musical treatment of the high explosive CL-20 and Prof Colin Pulham's work on the zeta form of the substance. The first performance of this exciting and ambitious piece of music, commissioned by Music in KB and supported by the University of Edinburgh Development Trust, was performed at the Edinburgh International Science Festival 2011. This lunchtime concert will be performed by musicians from the Edinburgh Quartet and is supported by the Centre for Science at Extreme Conditions.
