2018/19 Season Announcement + our new marketing intern, Carly!

We've just announced our 2018/19 season!!  We invite you to join us for Reef Music, Computed Futures, Shadows of Exoplanets, and Cellular Dance.  Each of these events is a collaboration between researchers and musicians - interweaving lecture and music in live performance.

Our first event is on October 12th with "Reef Music"!  Marine Biologist Sarah Davies of Boston University, the Marvento Duo with cellist Olivia J. P. Harris, David Ibbett, and Sophia Subbayya Vastek will be sharing narratives of coral reefs, their plight against climate change and evolutionary future.

ALSO, we are very excited to welcome Carly Ristuccia, who will be joining us this fall as our marketing and communications intern!  She recently graduated from Plymouth State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Arts and Entertainment Management. Carly immediately impressed us when she told us that she designed her own degree to include courses in business, marketing, graphic design, art, and music.  We're thrilled!

Website Updates & Looking Ahead

David and I have been spending a few intense days together in Troy, NY this week working on our exciting upcoming season, playing games (did you know David is a huge game aficionado??), and drinking wine.  It's been such a lovely and fun few days, and we're very excited to announce our upcoming season so soon!  

In the meantime, check out some of the updates that we've made on our website, especially our new mission page with clarified thoughts and hopes for the project.  And our updated collaborators page with our amazing and inspiring friends who have worked with us on past events!

Stay tuned for our upcoming season announcement!

Cheers,
Sophia
