Brad Barton mesmerized and delighted audiences at this August's After Dark: Illusions. He presented his new show, Subliminal, which combines magic, “mind reading,” and humor to showcase the powers of suggestion, influence, and persuasion.
French musician Colleen’s atmospheric compositions range from mysterious and contemplative to kinetic and playful. For Resonance, Colleen performed selections from her new album Captain of None, released in April 2015 on Thrill Jockey Records. Join host Nicole Minor as she interviews French musician, Colleen. 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. The second season of Resonance kicks off with Oakland-based sound-making duo Black Spirituals. Their music is an ecstatic intersection of the tone-generating electronics and guitars of Zachary James Watkins, and the heart-thumping acoustic percussion of Marshall Trammell. Watch as guests of Exploratorium After Dark collaborate in a hands-on, ears-on exploration of musical cultures from every continent with educator Michael Bradke. Join us for a conversation with Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, an artist and multi-instrumentalist who works with voice to create spontaneous and ecstatic musical compositions. Developed in the early days of electronic instruments, the ondes Martenot, characterized by a fragile and intricate design, produces a wholly unique and deeply evocative sound that transfixes musicians and listeners alike. Join us for the third event in the series, which features Anne McGuire and Wobbly. Since the late eighties, Anne McGuire has been making films, and Wobbly (Jon Leidecker) has been making electronic music. Together, Anne and Jon form the duo more widely known as the Freddy McGuire Show.
