Sun Music is derived from tones generated inside the sun, revealed by the science of helioseismology; recordings of these sound waves made by Alexander Kosovichev at the Stanford Solar Centre reveal distinct pitches.
The musical material is developed from combining these pitches with compositional techniques analogous to real, physical characteristics of different processes inside the sun. Part composed and part improvised, it is performed by a sextet and trio.
