In this continuation of the Smart Museum of Art’s Moon Songs series, internationally renowned composer and multitalented artistic genius Angel Bat Dawid performs an original Afro-sonic sonata for clarinet and piano. Responding to the works of sculptor Ruth Duckworth, she presents an interstellar musical tribute to Duckworth though her expert command of various instruments and original compositions, orchestrated under the inspiration of Duckworth’s philosophical leanings toward the interconnectivity of life. Dawid is accompanied by pianist Paige Brown.
