A new live multimedia performance piece that explores the power of music through the lens of Kronos Quartets past, present, and future. Oscar-nominated filmmakers Sam Green and Joe Bini have teamed up with Grammy winning Kronos Quartet for a wildly creative multimedia performance piece that blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews with such prominent artists as Philip Glass, Tanya Tagaq, Steve Reich, Wu Man and Terry Riley. As Green tells the multi-decade and continent-spanning story of the groundbreaking string quartet, Kronos revisits its extensive body of work, performing music by George Crumb, Aleksandra Vrebalov and many others. Together on stage, Green and Kronos interact with the stirring cinematic imagery on screen 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 quickly becomes a meditation on music itself.
The surprise hit of last year’s Sundance Film Festival, A Thousand Thoughts has earned lavish critical praise in performances around the world, trailing adjectives like “mind-blowing,” “magical,” “rewarding,” and “blissful.”
