Brian May at the Sonic Universe Concert in Tenerife

imageAstronomer-musician Brian May will make a guest appearance at Tangerine Dream’s Sonic Universe in Tenerife on 24 June, 2011. Sonic Universe will take place at the Magma Art and Congress Hall in the south of Tenerife as part of the spectacular forthcoming Starmus Festival, now just a few short months away (20-25 June, 2011).

Tangerine Dream will bring a unique feature to the concert with the incorporation into their performance of actual sound effects recorded from the Sun and other stars. Tickets are limited in number and are now on sale (see www.starmus.com for purchase details).

For Brian May, Tenerife has always been a spiritual home from home, inspiring his best creative powers. Queen devotees will know that he began his musical career on this island (he wrote the Queen song ‘Tie Your Mother Down’ during an observing trip to the Teide Observatory while working towards his PhD in Astrophysics in 1971).

May is also participating in a round table discussion from the GTC dome on the island of La Palma, alongside Richard Dawkins, Kip Thorne (the discoverer of “black holes”, George Smoot, Jill Tarter, Alexei Leonov and Buzz Aldrin.
