Playing the Exhibition: YST Conservatory at Sensory Odyssey

YST Conservatory of Music brings us on an embodied journey of wonder and discovery through the spectacular natural environments in Sensory Odyssey: Into the Heart of Our Living World.

Under the mentorship of Adeline Wong (Senior Lecturer, Composition), the Conservatory’s students have written a series of works in response to the exhibition, exploring humanity’s relationship with the natural world. Featuring musical compositions for solo instruments, this performance programme will be presented as a site-responsive experience in the multi-sensory environment of the installations, voyaging from the rainforests in French Guiana to the Arctic glaciers.
