Jim Nollman has spent a lifetime performing live with “super-human” improvisers—musicians that never stepped foot inside of Juilliard. The concert will feature Other Minds Executive and Artistic Director Charles Amirkhanian in conversation with our featured composer Jim Nollman, who has dedicated his life to the art and science of “interspecies” communication and music.

The virtual interview will feature selected recordings of live performances with Orcas, Macaws, and Turkeys as well as never-before-heard electroacoustic and contra dance music by Nollman. Amirkhanian and Nollman will also discuss the composer’s role in the U.S. Navy’s efforts to combat whale deaths through sonar, his work as an activist against Dolphin drive fisheries in Japan, and the intersection of technology and intuition involved in collaborating musically with animals.

Help us celebrate this milestone by tuning in! We will have a short Q&A at the end of the event, if you’d like to ask a question, you can do so during the virtual concert via the comments section.
