Cell, Crystals, Virus
Eine Zusammenarbeit mit Wissenschaftlern des Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Lisboa

Dauer: 16 min

The exciting realm of recent discoveries in biology inspired Camille van Lunen, Artist in Residence at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência in her new composition, Quatuor pour l'Aurore des Temps.
During her 2015-16 residency, Camille was able to move freely within the institute and its 40 labs, exchanging ideas with the scientists and exploring parallels in musical composition.

Each movement of the work illustrates one of the mysteries of the origins of life:

Cell division
Crystal formation
Virus attack

The quartet is scored for violin, clarinet, cello and piano.
