Silent Sky (2016)

Incidental music for the Tech Theater Company's production of Laura Gunderson's Silent Sky directed by Patricia Helsel

Silent Sky is the story of Henrietta Leavitt who figured out how to measure the universe outside out solar system. I created a simple theme to represent the wonder that Henrietta feels about looking into the night sky. This theme is transformed throughout the play to tie the many scenes that move from place to place and through several different time periods.
