What is the Music of Science?
Music is a language we are all trained in from birth. As we develop, the songs we hear and sing help shape our impressions of the world around us. Music enhances experiences, and provides emotional connections and novel understanding.
Science needs music. Any scientist will tell you there is a rich and deep beauty to exploring the natural world. However, when scientists communicate their findings, the energy of the experience is often lost due to the objectivity that science demands while interpreting and sharing conclusions.
The Music of Science is an effort to fuel science literacy and interest by sharing the incredible stories of science through a musical setting. Though currently in its infancy, it will explore the adventures of today’s scientists, as well as their discoveries and the majesty of nature.
Please enjoy my second addition to the Music of Science collection. This song explores an unexpected kayaking trip through a bioluminescent algae bloom, highlighting both the ecology as well as the beauty that the phenomenon produces.
This is my first song of science! Thank you for joining me this early in the creative process. I am excited to reveal the music video for the song titled ‘In Pursuit of Knowledge’ based on the North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES) oceanographic expeditions. Click to watch!
