The Art of Collaboration
Friday, March 04, 2005
Today, Ben Neill, composer, performer, and inventor of the mutantrumpet, joins us to talk about his latest project: Palladio, a collaboration with media artist Bill Jones to adapt Jonathan Dee's 1998 novel of the same name to the big screen. A combination of drama, music, and TV commercials, Palladio makes its New York premiere at Symphony Space this week. We'll also be joined by Michael Harrison and Jacky Terrasson, two of 40 classical and jazz pianists who are converging in town for a 12-Hour Tsunami Relief Pianothon this weekend.
