The legendary Joshua Light Show returns to the Exploratoriums Kanbar Forum to improvise an immersive, otherworldly environment of light in collaboration with acclaimed musicians Julia Holter and Linda Perhacs. 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 Kings 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.

Join the talented performers from the SFJAZZ Highschool Allstars for a live performance in our Kanbar Forum.

Join Sarah Cahill for a interview with avant-garde percussionist Susie Ibarra. The second season of Resonance kicks off with Oakland-based sound-making duo Black Spirituals.
