Oscar-nominated filmmaker Sam Green and Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet have teamed up 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, Laurie Anderson, John Cage, and many others. Together on stage, Green and Kronos 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 act of listening to it closely, the experience of feeling it deeply, and the power that it has to change the world.
