Description
 
Oscar-nominated filmmakers Sam Green and Joe Bini have teamed up with Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet for a wildly creative multimedia performance piece that blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews with such prominent artists as Philip Glass, Tanya Tagaq, Steve Reich, Wu Man, and Terry Riley. Together on stage, Green and Kronos interact with stirring cinematic imagery to craft an important record and exploration of late 20th– and early 21st–century music. As Green tells the multi-decade and continent-spanning story of this groundbreaking string quartet, Kronos revisits its extensive body of work. Transcending the typical live music and film event, this collaboration quickly becomes a meditation on music itself — the act of listening to it closely, the experience of feeling it deeply, and the power that it has to change the world.
