Alarm Will Sound is a 20-member contemporary music ensemble that has been hailed as one of the most original ensembles on the American music scene today.
«1969» is an imaginative multimedia fantasy that traces the compelling story of an exceptional group of musicians who were striving to forge new forms of art amidst the turmoil of the late 1960s.
Described by The New York Times as “the soundtrack to a collaboration that never was,” 1969 is based on a supposed meeting between the avant-garde composer Karlheinz Stockhausen and Beatle John Lennon that was ultimately prevented because of a blizzard.
The result is a remarkable kaleidoscope that vividly reflects the sound and fury of the artistic and social upheavals of that era.
