A major traveling exhibition on the music of nature—and the nature of music—is scheduled to open in 2007 as a result of a collaboration among ASTC, the Science Museum of Minnesota, and the BioMusic Program of National Musical Arts, an interdisciplinary group of scientists and musicians. Planning was supportec by a grant from the National Science Foundation. We share here highlights of the planning process.
