Katie Paterson's complex and technically challenging projects are born from intense periods of research and draw on scientific and technical expertise from around the globe. 

Known for her cross-medium, multi disciplinary practice, Paterson's work Earth-Moon-Earth (Moonlight Sonata Reflected from the Surface of the Moon) captures a transmission of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata which has been reflected from the surface of the moon, converted into morse code and plays on a self-playing grand piano.

A live performance of Moonlight Sonata Reflected from the Surface of the Moon will be scheduled throughout the programme duration.
