The muon (/ˈmjuːɒn/; from the Greek letter mu (μ) is an elementary particle similar to the electron. They are everywhere around us, in us and past us. They come from stars. These star remnants move silently and invisibly through time and space.

On a Friday night in Port Adelaide, I went to the historic and very atmospheric packing shed at the Old Harts Mill and was treated to a rather special light and sound Fringe preview show.

A team of talented artists have joined forces to present an art installation that features the blending of science, spirituality and music.

On the internal walls of the Mill was a calming and soulful projection of the exploration of the interconnecting patterns of sacred geometry, colour and light.

The imagery is captured in real-time using a grid of 9 Geiger counters and a cosmic ray detector; the result is an ever-changing kaleidoscope of pattern and colour and is quite a breath-taking experience to see.

Delicate harmonies and background melodies offer a wonderful soundscape that compliments the projection.

That Friday night I learnt that muons are matter that matter. They are sound and colour and art and beauty.

You can see Muon - Cascading Light in the Flour Mill in Port Adelaide at the 2017 Adelaide Fringe Festival. Tickets are on sale now.

The exhibition will run daily with free performances during the day. Tickets can be purchased online for any of the evening performances.

The event is presented by Darren Curtis (musician, composer and artist) and Bradley Pitt (visionary, artist and curator) of Sacred Resonance and Jessica Curtis (artist and curator) of In Search of the Divine.

Darren and Bradley have presented many shows at festivals across Australia. In 2016 they were recipients of the Adelaide Fringe Cultural Grant for Agartha Installation. Their work involves the latest discoveries in musicology, archeo-acoustics, and brain-body entrainment with the consciousness sciences.

Jessica Curtis engages in creative projects that bring the spiritual and scientific together and celebrates in the co-creation of the divine and the awakening of humanity.

If you want to see something quite different this Fringe, then head to Port Adelaide, relax and take a meditative journey with muons.
