Our Sun is amazing. In this immersive half-hour performance, see it in wavelengths beyond human vision and ‘hear’ its sounds, which scientists use to ‘look’ inside it. A rare world premiere from poet Katrina Porteous and computer music composer and pioneer Peter Zinovieff. Visuals by Christopher Hudson.

Duration: 45 mins, including introduction to the Sun by a Northumbria University Solar Physicist
