Physics Colloquium Series: Professor Steve Taylor
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, School of Music, “Music and Science.”
Stephen Andrew Taylor’s music often explores boundaries between art and science. His first orchestra commission, Unapproachable Light, inspired by images from the Hubble Space Telescope and the New Testament, was premiered by the American Composers Orchestra in 1996 in Carnegie Hall. Other works include the chamber quartet Quark Shadows, commissioned by the Chicago Symphony and premiered in 2001; and Seven Memorials, a half-hour cycle for piano inspired by the work of Maya Lin and premiered by Gloria Cheng in Los Angeles, 2004; she also performed the work at Tanglewood in 2006. He was a 2014 Fellow of the Guggenheim Foundation.
All colloquia will be held in Moulton Hall, Room 214 at 4 pm. Refreshments will be served 10 minutes prior to each colloquium in the adjoining hallway or in the room. Moulton Hall is located on School Street in Normal, south of the College Avenue intersection.
