Conductor Alan Pierson, Artistic Director of Alarm Will Sound, shares his experiences of developing remote, online ensemble content during the pandemic. 


From his reimagining of John Luther Adams’ Ten Thousand Bird as Ten Thousand Birds / Ten Thousand Screens, called “the coolest music video EVER” by David P. Stearns of the Philadelphia Inquirer, through the ongoing “Video Chat Variations” series, which plays with the delays and distortions of video chat and recently debuted with Meredith Monk’s new work Anthem, Pierson provides a frank assessment of the opportunities, challenges, and questions of remote large ensemble music-making.
