    The Kronos Quartet should be considered a National Treasure.  I’d follow them almost anywhere they’d go.

    Speaking of visualizing music – from another BB article – Steve Mackey’s Physical Property, as played by the KQ.  Me, I see this piece as ballet-jazz.

    The Kronos Quartet are primates, too. Very talented primates.
