Kronos plays live to the solar eclipse on Monday (and there’s an app for that)

Kronos’ performance of Wayne Grim’s “233rd Day, before and after Totality” (a computer sonification of Monday’s total solar eclipse with live string quartet music) is SOLD OUT. However, to hear the concert, you do not have to be in the theater, at the Exploratorium, in San Francisco, or even in the United States! You just need a computer or phone. We’ll be one of the many live streams available on the Exploratorium’s website and free Total Solar Eclipse App for iOS and Android. The app, which includes information about the eclipse and safe viewing techniques, also allows users to view the eclipse live from their phones and tablets, and share to televisions in HD video.

On August 21, the sonification live stream begins at 9:15 a.m. PDT/12:15 p.m. EDT and Kronos begins playing at 10:30 a.m. PDT/1:30 p.m. EDT.
