Mind Out Of Matter - Alarm Will Sound

It's been like six years, and six years too long since I've been able to fill in and team up with my friends at AWS. The older we get, the less frequently I'm able to see a lot of these guys, so I'm really looking forward to the hang. 

This run already looks promising, as my vocal range has come into question. It looks like composer Scott Johnson has decided to trust my pipes! Time to shed...

Pioneering composer Scott Johnson teams up with the renowned new music ensemble Alarm Will Sound in Mind Out of Matter, a work based on the recorded voice of philosopher Daniel Dennett. Dennett is known for grounding his philosophy in cognitive science and evolutionary theory, and Mind Out of Matter features his reflections on the origins and evolution of religion and supernatural beliefs. With melodies and rhythms derived directly from Dennett’s speech, the colorful, rock-inflected score tracks his view of the Darwinian life of ideas, evolving within their native ecosystems of human minds and cultures.
