Natural Frequencies commenced the Sather Tower Centennial with a ‘shake’ as crowds gathered to watch and listen to a musical and visual performance like no other. Connecting real time seismological data to the carillon of Sather Tower, the Natural Frequencies production team was able to produce a surreal and thought provoking musical manifestation of the tectonic shift going on underneath our feet. The performance brought a new perspective on the earth’s internal workings which are too often ignored in the seismologically active Bay Area and a 21st century musical facelift to one Cal’s most beloved icons.
