Sounds of the Universe
Sounds of the Universe / 28 November / Scitech Planetarium
Enjoy the deep tones of Planet Gongs and Crystal Singing Bowls while feasting your eyes on a visual extravaganza.
Immerse yourself in the complex overtones of Planet-tuned Gongs and Crystal Singing Bowls while embarking on a visual journey through space within the largest planetarium in the Southern Hemisphere.
During this 50 minute live performance, Andrew Cox will envelope you in a rich soundscape of Gong and Crystal Bowls to match a curated tour of the solar system on the 180 degree omni cinema screen.
Featured throughout the night, and woven into the dramatic soundscape, will also be a selection of interstellar sounds recorded by radio telescopes and NASA.
Sounds of the Universe will be the first time instruments are played live inside the Perth Planetarium and it is also believed that the event will be the first of its kind in the world.

About Planet Gongs:
Planet Gongs are tuned in conformity with the orbital properties of the Earth, Moon, Sun, and Planets according to calculations of Hans Cousto. They each resonate in harmony with the cycles of celestial bodies and communicate a distinct aspect of the “music of the spheres”. Their sound is deep and mysterious and can convey an unusual atmosphere that connects the keen listener to parts of the solar system.
About Crystal Singing Bowls:
Crystal Singing Bowls are made from 99.9% quartz crystal and produce a bright and consistent sound. When played together, their angelic tones produce a symphony of high vibration soundwaves like no other instrument.
