Kronos Quartet

Waleed Shah

Oscar-nominated filmmakers Sam Green and Joe Bini teamed up with Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet for a multimedia performance piece that blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews with prominent artists such as Philip Glass, Tanya Tagaq, Steve Reich, Wu Man and Terry Riley.

Together on stage, Green and Kronos interact with the stirring cinematic imagery to craft an important record and exploration of late 20th and early 21st century music. Transcending the typical live music and film event, this collaboration becomes a meditation on music itself—the act of listening to it closely, the experience of feeling it deeply, and the power that it has to change the world.
