Musical Abstracts

As part of the Curiosity Carnival (Fri 29 Sept 2017) we challenged five researchers to work with songwriter, Jonny Berliner, to create songs about their research and these are the results. Hear research as you've never heard it before as we look at literature from the 18th century to Mars landers. You can listen to the music and explore the topics or listen to 10 minute interviews with the researchers about the research featured in the songs.
