Bay Area Premiere of Sun Rings, a major collaboration among the world-renowned, SF-based Kronos Quartet, composer Terry Riley, and NASA (yes, that NASA). Co-commissioned by the space agency, SFJAZZ, and others, Sun Rings is an audio-visual voyage into the solar system, combining Riley's haunting and intensely moving score-performed on-stage by Kronos-with live-triggered sound-samples of solar winds and other stellar phenomena, all set to the awe-inspiring visual accompaniment of astral images gathered by Voyager spacecraft.
Tickets are: $28 / $46
