Origins: Life and the Universe was an audiovisual concert that paid tribute to some of the greatest discoveries made by space scientists. In collaboration with the University of Washington Astrobiology Program in the Department of Astronomy, eight Seattle composers premiered original gorgeous orchestral music that showcased the complexity and beauty of our universe. The symphonic concert was accompanied by projected high-resolution movies created using some of the most spectacular imagery, videos and conceptual art from the Hubble telescope, NASA, JPL, the European Southern Observatory, the European Space Agency, the University of Washington, the IRFU-CEA in Paris and collaborating astronomy departments across the globe. This live concert featured Grammy-award winning conductor David Sabee, and the renowned NW Sinfonia orchestra. The concert was a benefit for the scholarship program at the University of Washington Astrobiology Program and the Department of Astronomy. This spectacular, sold-out concert took place on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at 2 p.m. at the S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, Washington.
