For most, microbiology and contemporary classical music occupy opposite ends of the intellectual spectrum. Composer Fay Wang feels otherwise. The rising talent was commissioned by Dartmouth College to create a collaborative piece with members of the school’s biology department. Known for arrangements that employ changing instrumental combinations, Wang’s style lends itself to an interpretation of the life cycle of human microbes. Inspired by a variety of sources — including images she viewed on a microscope — the award-winning musician reflects this evolutionary process in an untitled work based on perspectives of time and space.
