SOUNDS of the uni­verse have in­spired a mu­si­cal pro­duc­tion at the Grav­ity Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre this weekend.

Per­for­mance artists Gen­re­fonix will stage Wal­brininy on Au­gust 11 and 12 as part of Na­tional Sci­ence Week ac­tiv­i­ties.

The per­for­mance will take the au­di­ence through the venue and in­clude the ar­rival of an alien and space­ship.

The cen­tre’s lead as­tronomer Rick Tonello, Noon­gar Elder Noel Nan­nup and the Mo­orditj Mob dancers will form the wel­come party for the alien. The show will in­clude sci-fi film se­quences, live mu­sic and In­dige­nous storytelling to un­cover a world of spi­ralling neu­tron stars and demon­strate how sci­en­tists ‘lis­ten to the uni­verse’ fol­low­ing the de­tec­tion of grav­i­ta­tional waves.

The Noon­gar con­cept of ‘wal­brininy’ means to­tal well­be­ing, all en­com­pass­ing, ev­ery­thing con­nected and right.

In the show, Wal­brininy is a fic­tional planet, ex­ist­ing 130 mil­lion years ago.

The Grav­ity Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre is also host­ing the Math­sAlive ex­hi­bi­tion un­til Novem­ber 7.
