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.

Behold beryllium, an exceptionally light, strong metal that is both prized and poisonous. Found in minerals such as emeralds and other forms of beryl, beryllium is highly conductive to heat and electricity, nonmagnetic, capable of great elasticity, and impervious to a wide range of temperatures, making it a favored material for aerospace projects such as space shuttles and satellites. In this video you will discover the element’s ancient and atomic histories with host Ron Hipschman!

Join Dr. Jay Daniel, Director of Engineering at L-3 Integrated Optical Systems Tinsley, to explore beryllium’s central role in the future James Webb Space Telescope.
