Earlier this morning I played a suite by American composer Michael Gandolfi from his larger work called The Garden of Cosmic Speculation. The music was inspired by an actual garden in Scotland of the same name.
The garden's design incorporates "features suggested by wave theory, sub-atomic particles, the diversity of DNA, the birth and expansion of the universe, super-string theory, and much more," to quote Nick Jones's liner notes for the CD.
Get a sense of what that looks like here.
