Serene Serendipity

As luck would have it, I’ve been celebrating serendipity

At New Scientist Live at the weekend, there was so much to see and hear – it was impossible to experience everything in a couple of days.
Fortunately, it was difficult to miss Ray Lee’s  ethereal sound installation.

It was an unexpected sonic oasis amid the chaotic crush of the science crowds.

On Saturday evening at the Barbican, the theme of mesmerising minimalism continued with a Terry Riley concert. A different line-up and arrangement of In C to this one: https://youtu.be/lJPJywWfyGo  – but equally engaging.

Then, later in the week, I happened to hear an interview with Steve Reich on Radio 4.

 

A round of applause for serendipity!
