The innovative ensemble PUBLIQuartet and the Hip Hop poetry trio The Mighty Third Rail join forces in a mash up of strings, verses and beat-boxing, as the worlds of Hip Hop and Classical music collide. Inspired by the music of the groundbreaking composer György Ligeti, these six musicians come together in a modern day retelling of the Garden of Eden story they call Changing Night

Eve has gone missing and within the course of one night, Adam’s entire contemporary existence is evolving before his eyes. The Mighty Third Rail takes on the role of civilization, PUBLIQuartet represents that of nature, and violinist Curtis Stewart (a member of both ensembles) serves as the bridge to both worlds in this journey that questions the nature of change, survival, and how the things we build to inhabit this dynamic world can  co-exist with the natural without destroying it.
