We've had some recent press coverage that we'd like to share with everyone!
We had a great show on October 26th in San Francisco at Swissnex, Switzerland's global network promoting education, research, and innovation. The event was part of the Bay Area Science Festival, which is dedicated to celebrating the region's scientific wonders, resources, and opportunities by exploring the role of science, engineering, and technology locally & in the world. Following the performance before a packed house, our chief science advisor, Dr. Bill Collins, engaged Daniel Saraga, Head of Science Communication at the Swiss National Science Foundation, in a conversation about climate science and the role of the arts in science communication. We'll be posting photos from the event soon!
Our team is made up of highly diverse, creative, talented, and energetic individuals…and it also spans several generations! We’re starting off this feature with a profile of our youngest member, Riti Hegde.
We've been busy since our last performance at the San Francisco Green Festival! We have big ambitions for 2017--we'll post our concert and event schedule here soon...
Last week we closed out our 2016 performance cycle with a show at the San Francisco Green Festival. The venue, old pier 35 jutting out into San Francisco Bay, made an unusual stage for the band, but we had a great crowd and also had a booth for the three day festival, which attracted thousands of people.
We are thrilled to have been invited to perform at the San Francisco Green Festival on November 12th! We'll be performing at 5PM in the Sustainable Innovation Pavilion. Click on the logo for more information.
We are currently performing "Climate", a 30-minute original composition by Erik Ian Walker in collaboration with The ClimateMusic Project.
