Renowned film composer Hans Zimmer helps UCF celebrate the arts at the Dr. Phillips Center

If you’ve seen any big-budget Hollywood film in the past 20 years, chances are you’ve almost been brought to tears by a score written by renowned composer Hans Zimmer. From The Lion King to The Dark Knight, Zimmer has composed music that transports his listeners right into the action of the movie, into another dimension of sound and space. This year, at UCF Celebrates the Arts, experience that sensation live as Zimmer performs with visual artists and story creators from the movie Interstellar. The scientific presentation combines music, poetry, prose and computer simulations to envelop the audience in the science of warped space and time, covering topics ranging from gravitational waves, colliding black holes, supernovas and the birth of the universe. It might be a nerdy lesson, but we think it’s safe to say this is one astronomy lecture you definitely won’t be dozing off in.
