“To bring “Hyperstring Trilogy” back to Lucerne in 2015, a group effort was needed, Machover says. Rebecca Kleinberger, a PhD student in Machover’s research group, and Wellesley College undergraduate Galen Chuang, participating through MIT’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, reconstructed the music and systems used in past performances, while 2015 MIT alumnus Kevin King helped redevelop the technology being used this year to control sensing and interaction. (“Remarkable,” Machover says of the student efforts.)”
