The Falling Tree Collaborative
The Falling Tree Collaborative concert series is an ongoing collaboration between scientists and composers with the goal to increase scientific literacy of the public through a novel combination of scientific presentation and musical performance. This concert series is designed to bring the sounds of the proverbial “tree falling in a forest” to new audiences and explores themes of climate change, sustainable food production, and general wonder of our shared natural world with a special focus on systems involving plants. The performance will feature the work of four MSU plant Biologists (Kadeem Gilbert, Krista Isaacs, Phoebe Zarnetske, Berkley Walker) with contemporary music from four Michigan Composers (Libby Meyer, Lisa Coons, Lyn Goeringer, Spencer Arias). This event is free and open to the public as part of the MSU Science Festival.
