Imagine a visual odyssey through the cosmos, driven by lush musical compositions, and inspired by complex themes of astronomy, engineering, biology, and psychology. Paul D Miller, aka DJ Spooky, composed the music for The Hidden Code based on conversations with several of Dartmouth’s finest physicists, astronomers, engineers, biologists, brain scientists and computer scientists. Commissioned by The Neukom Institute of Computational Science at Dartmouth College, featuring original poetry by physicist/author Marcelo Gleiser and stunning visuals created by the staff of the award-winning Charles Hayden Planetarium at Museum of Science Boston, The Hidden Code is an hour-long multimedia experience that is a synthesis of emerging science, poetry and music transformed into the ultimate fusion of art and science.
