- Terry Riley: Sun Rings
For Sun Rings, the titans of the contemporary string quartet meet the pioneer of musical minimalism in an immersive, expansive production. Terry Riley creates “a sound both definitively human and celestial” (Los Angeles Times) from NASA recordings of the eerie whistling, whirring, and humming of outer space, blended with live strings and gripping imagery by visual designer Willie Williams. Kronos Quartet deftly inhabits these evocative “spacescapes” in a timeless work that peers far into the unknown of the cosmos while keeping us moored to those most basic human experiences of wonder, compassion, and connection.
