In physics, string theory is a theoretical framework in which the particles are replaced by one-dimensional objects called strings. It describes how these strings propagate through space and interact with each other. In a similar manner, in string theory, the elementary particles we observe in particle accelerators could be thought of as the “musical notes” or excitation modes of elementary strings. In string theory, as in violin playing, the string must be stretched under tension in order to become excited. This show utilizes a solo violin performer to bring these scientific thoughts to reality. Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings can be heard along with The Four Seasons by Vivaldi and Cambridge, 1963 from Theory of Everything. One can see strings stretched and pulled all over the field as the beautiful and mathematical show comes to life.

* The solo string part can be performed on a synth or another instrument and utilize a violin “actor” as reference.
