Music of György Ligeti
Clocks and Clouds
Music Director Esa-Pekka Salonen leads members of the SF Symphony and Chorus in LIGETI: PARADIGMS, a richly imaginative audio and visual exploration of three works by György Ligeti. Merging music with Artificial Intelligence (AI) through partnerships with media artist and AI pioneer Refik Anadol and SF Symphony Collaborative Partner and roboticist Carol Reiley, this program aims to expand the possibilities of the orchestral experience.
Clocks and Clouds is rooted in two opposing paradigms—the most predictable and mechanical (clocks) and the most unpredictable and unrepeatable elements of nature (clouds).
