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.
This newly added Resonance event highlights an emerging collaboration between one of ballet’s most visionary choreographers, Alonzo King, and pioneering natural soundscape artist Bernie Krause. Susie Ibarra is known for her innovative style and cultural dialogue as a composer, improviser, percussionist, and humanitarian. She is interested in the intersection of traditional and avant-garde styles and how this informs and inspires interdisciplinary art, education, and public service. Most recently, Ibarra’s composition and improvisation work has blended traditions, rhythms, and tunings from musical cultures across the globe. Join Sarah Cahill for a interview with avant-garde percussionist Susie Ibarra. Baltimore-based musician and composer Dan Deacon hooks listeners with strong melodic lines, immersed in a sea of competing rhythmic structures, distorted sound samples, and synthesized and acoustic textures.
His Resonance performance at the Exploratorium featured the Disklavier, an electronic version of the player-piano. Deacon is influenced by the work of composer Conlon Nancarrow, who pioneered the use of player-pianos to explore music unplayable by human hands.
