Adrian Hornsby is a writer who sees stories as music and time in lanscapes. His work is characterised by an intensely melodic use of language, and vivid scenes blown across vast interior spaces. Moods range from the subversively funny to the malevonlently beautiful.
Hornsby's writing covers a remarkable compass of forms and interests - including theatre, opera, film, essays and non-fiction books; and ranging in subject from teenage runaways on stony beaches to hydroponic tomatoes in the Middle East.
Adrian came on a curated visit to CERN in 2012, along with the young composer Arnoud Noordegraf with whom he won the Honorary Mention in the first Prix Ars Electronica Collide@CERN open call in 2012. They have begun working on a large music theatre project called "I Sing a Particle" and Arts@CERN is supporting them by curating research visits at the laboratory, their first last year to research scientists' body language in discussions and lectures.
