Join us for a moderated discussion with Alonzo King and Bernie Krause. Krause previously collaborated with Richard Blackford to compose a symphony for orchestra and wild soundscapes, which premiered in July 2014. Alonzo King’s groundbreaking choreography manipulates the laws of energy and matter that govern movement in the natural world. Together, these artists are exploring how human music and dance have evolved from the sounds and movements of other living things.
