This concert is the first in a three-part series that strives to excavate spontaneous sonic combustion and delve into the unknown through Conduction, an artistic process created by Butch Morris to enable "an improvised duet for ensemble and conductor" without words or musical notation. This concert is part of the Conduction series, with future performances occurring in February and March.
