Head to the Sydney Observatory for performances and star gazing as a part of Sydney WorldPride.

Join Alice Motion and Alexis Weaver for an experiment in collective sound and become a part of the Atomic Choir to create an album of some of science’s greatest hits. Create rhythms for reactions, basslines for the Big Bang and melodies for molecules in an immersive experience merging sound, music, and science.

Alice Motion is a chemist and science communicator who leads the SCOPE (Science Communication, Outreach, Participation and Education) Research Group at the School of Chemistry, University of Sydney. Alice’s interdisciplinary research aims to connect people with science. Alice is an innovator in citizen science and outreach and is part of the Open Source Malaria (OSM) consortium.

Alexis Weaver is an electroacoustic composer and casual lecturer at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Her aim is to bring a new awareness of the beauty of sound to a wider audience. Alexis is also a member of the Nanosonic Stories team at the University of Sydney Nano Institute, and she is very curious about the role sound can play in learning about science.  

Emily Parsons-Lord is an emerging cross-disciplinary artist whose practice is informed by research and critical dialogue with materials and climate science, through investigation into air, both materially and culturally.
