Composer Elainie Lillios will present the debut of her newest sound and light composition, Night Sky, at the James Turrell Twilight Epiphany Skyspace. In celebration of the Skyspace's 10th anniversary, Night Sky will be presented every evening through October 23, after the sunset light sequence, from the structure's embedded sound and light system.

Lillios presents a meditative sonic journey in response to the iconic Turrell work situated on Rice's campus. Her composition also incorporates the poem Night Sky by Don Bogen. Through a narrative that juxtaposes the starry, ever-expanding universe with the author's fixed presence on earth, the poem offers a tender reflection on the loss of a loved one. Lillios integrates Bogen’s poem into her soundscape in a manner that reflects and enhances the text while simultaneously forming a connection between the twilight of life and the Twilight Epiphany Skyspace.
