The Garden of Cosmic Speculation is one of the most original and important gardens of the 21st century, created by the architectural critic and designer Charles Jencks. Covering thirty acres in the Borders area of Scotland, The Garden of Cosmic Speculation is conceived as a place to explore certain fundamental aspects of the universe. What are atoms made of and how should we imagine them? How does DNA make up a living organism? Charles Jencks has created a series of new and expansive visual metaphors that challenge misleading and frequently misunderstood concepts such as the 'Big Bang' and the 'Selfish Gene'.

This piece moves through the physical space of Jencks' garden exploring its sensuous surface in rich colours and varied musical styles while exploiting its underlying theoretical basis to generate the musical material. Each of the eleven movements focuses on a single garden feature which, in turn, is based on a particular scientific concept or theory. Sometimes the interpretation of the science is quite literal, at other times more subtle.
