"Angels & Demons at Play" Inspired by Sun Ra

Shadow puppet designed by artist Allan Winkler

A multimedia performance this weekend called "Angels & Demons at Play" takes its name from a song by Sun Ra, the avant-garde pianist and band leader - and combines live music with Balinese and masked dance, and electronic visual media.

By Laura Spencer


Kansas City, Mo. – The event also includes shadow puppets designed by artist Allan Winkler, and original compositions written by Patrick Conway for western instruments and for the Gamelan orchestra, performed by Gamelan Genta Kasturi. Winkler and Conway spoke to KCUR's Laura Spencer.
