MIAMI, FL (February 28, 2013)- FIU astrophysicist-musician Fiorella Terenzi will deliver a special lecture about acoustic astronomy and astrophysics on Thursday, March 7, at 3:30 PM in SIPA 125. Terenzi has a doctorate in physics from the University of Milan. As a researcher at the Computer Audio Research Laboratory, University of California, San Diego, she pioneered techniques to convert radio waves from outer space into sound. The work resulted in a CD titled "Music from the Galaxies" released by Island Records in 1991. Her award-winning CD-ROM "Invisible Universe" and best-selling books Heavenly Knowledge, Musica Dalle Stelle, and Der Kosmos ist weiblich weave astronomy and music, science and art into a tapestry for the senses. She has appeared on CNN, The Wall Street Journal, People, Time, Glamour and lectured at UCSD, Stanford, and MIT.
