Katie Paterson’s Earth – Moon – Earth (Moonlight Sonata Reflected from the Surface of the Moon).
For her piece Earth – Moon – Earth (Moonlight Sonata Reflected from the Surface of the Moon), Katie Paterson translated Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” into Morse Code and sent it to the moon via radio. She then collected the code that bounced back—now altered by its journey and the distortions of terrain on the surface of the moon—and turned it back into music. A Disklavier piano in the gallery is set to play this new composition, a collaboration between Beethoven and the moon. However, at the time of our tour of the gallery, only an errant visitor was playing on the piano.
