Watch MuSci – ‘Cell/o

We are extremely excited to be able to share a recording of our MuSci – ‘Cell/o event, recorded in summer 2021.

The session explores science and music with cellist Robert Max, Centre of the Cell Director, Professor Frances Balkwill, Professor Victoria Sanz-Moreno and Queen Mary’s Director of Music, Paul Max Edlin.

This film focuses on human and musical cells and how they have similar qualities. It features the music of J.S. Bach, specifically his Cello Suite No.2 in D minor, BWV 1008, which is performed in full.

It will premiere at 6pm on 4th February 2022, when you’ll be able to watch it here:

Devised and Produced by Frances Balkwill and Paul Max Edlin, MuSci is a collaboration between Music at Queen Mary and Centre of the Cell. The film was made by Pocket Blockbuster and was edited by Queen Mary alumnus Mitchell Harris.
