The world premiere of Towards Silence, a site-specific work by the internationally renowned composer Sir John Tavener. Tavener’s piece is an explicit meditation on death and the four states of consciousness (atma): waking, dream, deep sleep, and that which is beyond existence.

$95 includes priority seating, pre-performance discussion, and post-performance reception; $40 concert only.

Presented with the World Science Festival

Towards Silence was commissioned by the Rubin Museum of Art and the Music Mind Spirit Trust, with the support of The Argosy Foundation Contemporary Music Fund.
