Berkeley Center for New Media/Art Techonology & Culture Colloquium [ATC] presents: David Harrington, Sonic Immersion
Through more than three decades of work with the Kronos Quartet, David Harrington has had a major impact on contemporary music. Kronos commissions works from composers who re-envision what a string quartet is able to do, develops concert experiences that expand the definition of what a string quartet performance can be, and assembles recording projects that challenge established ideas of how a string quartet can sound.
For this ATC lecture, Harrington will play a diverse selection of recordings drawn from his extensive recording collection amassed over three decades, followed by a discussion with Professor David Wessel of the Center for New Music and Audio Technology.
