June 2019 Edition:

Special Guest: Composer Eric Whitacre
Grammy award winning composer and conductor Eric Whitacre joins All Space Considered to discuss his recent composition, Deep Field: The Impossible Magnitude of Our Universe. The piece was inspired by the Hubble Space Telescope’s iconic Deep Field image, a ten-day exposure of a tiny pinprick of sky that, before the image, appeared to have nothing in it. The Deep Field revealed thousands of galaxies and gave us a new understanding of our place in the universe. Mr. Whitacre will describe the origins of the piece, the artistic process behind its development, and the challenges that arise in bridging the gap between science and art.
