These photos of the firework finale at the Edinburgh Festival are just too spectacular not to share! So, what are some 21st-century ideas for merging music, technology and gunpowder? From Tod Machover’s Facebook album, where he writes:
Had VIP seats for the end-of-Festival fireworks last evening in Princes Gardens just below Edinburgh Castle. Remarkable to see colored fire streaming down from castle as well as shooting upwards. Scottish Chamber Orchestra was conducted by my dear friend/colleague Garry Walker (who premiered “Skellig”). And Walton-VaughnWilliams-Prokovieff program was both bombastic and sensitive. Looks like I might have a chance to “play with fire” at this event next year; we’ll see!!!
