Boyajian Star Music

Hammond, Drew

About the work

Boyajian’s Star, known more formally as KIC 8462852, presents scientists with a difficult to explain anomalous light fluctuation pattern.  There are many theories, but the most popular is that the fluctuations are caused by an alien superstructure.

Boyajian Star Music is an open score piece in 4 parts.  Parts 1, 2 and 3 are accompanied by a standard ossia part which is a doubling of the main parts, minus very fast grace notes and substituting in more glissandi, and which may be played in addition to the main.
