Voyager

  • Spencer Museum of Art 1301 Mississippi Street Lawrence, KS, 66045 United States (map)

Composer Ben Justis has written an epic piece about the Voyager satellite and its historic mission for the KU Percussion Group. Inspired by NASA’s Voyager mission and recordings of music on the Golden Record, a time capsule placed onboard in the event the spacecraft are discovered in the future, this concert-length work for percussion octet invites new encounters with art and music and ways of understanding our cosmic neighborhood. We’re partnering with the Spencer Museum at KU to present the world premiere, which will feature video projections and spatialized sound.
