A conversation with David Harrington, artistic director, violinist and cofounder of the Kronos Quartet, as the ensemble prepares to perform their final concert for the post Sun Rings release tour in Asheville, NC, on Tuesday September 17th at the Diana Wortham Theatre.
Sun Rings was begun 18 years ago, commissioned by NASA. It is a collaboration between composer Terry Riley, astrophysicist Dr. Don Gurnett and performed by the Kronos Quartet and their team. It includes sounds recorded by the Voyager and Galileo probes in the 70s and 80s from ionized plasma – sent back to earth and processed to be audible to human ears.
