Physicists on Einstein and Einstein on the Beach

My name is Hai-Ting Chinn. I’m a singer, and I’m in the 2012 production of Einstein on the Beach. If you’ve seen the production, I’m the one with pig-tails who listens to the conch shell. I also sing the aria called “The Bed,” which consists of a series of increasingly longer and higher notes with no consonants (and no mercy for the singer!), and accompanies a white bar of light as it disappears into darkness.

I’m also a not-so-secret science geek. I have a podcast called Scopes Monkey Choir: where music and sound meet science and skepticism, which I co-host with composer Matthew Schickele. While touring with Einstein on the Beach, I’ve been interviewing scientists about Einstein, both the person and the opera.

Our regular listeners know all this already, and are probably wondering why I’m telling them yet again. It’s because I thought that some of the audience of the opera, who have never heard or even heard of our podcast, might be interested in hearing those interviews.

In this post are links to the episodes in which I chat with scientists about Einstein on the Beach, plus a conversation with Philip Glass. Enjoy, and thanks for listening!
