Moody Center for the Arts

EcoSono Ensemble

Friday, Apr. 13, 2018 – Saturday, Apr. 14, 2018

07:00 PM – 09:00 PM


The Moody will present a selection of musical works by musician and composer Matthew Burtner and the collective EcoSono as part of the 2018 Rice University Cultures of Energy Symposium. This innovative multimedia performance addresses climate change and the role the arts can play in shaping conversations around the future of the planet.

Founded and directed by Burtner, EcoSono is a nonprofit environmental arts organization that comprises environmentalists, musicians, and artists working for environmental sustainability and human creativity in collaboration with nature. They will perform together with Loop38, a local collective of passionate musicians bringing new music to Houston.

Presented by the Moody Center for the Arts and the Center for Energy and Environmental Research in the Human Sciences (CENHS) in cooperation with Rice Electroacoustic Music Labs (REMLABS).
