“Exhalation by Ted Chiang is a collection of short stories that will make you think, grapple with big questions, and feel more human. The best kind of science fiction.” —Barack Obama
Not your run-of-the-mill book club, Bushwick shows offers a special interaction between audiences and musicians. Bushwick performers present their own original songs inspired by the show’s featured book. This concert features music inspired by Exhalation by Ted Chiang. Chiang is the local Nebula and Hugo Award-winning science fiction author, perhaps most well known for “Story of Your Life,” the short story that the film Arrival is based on. In Exhalation, Chiang presents another fantastical and elegant collection of stories, full of revelatory ideas and deeply sympathetic characters. Using that work as a springboard, artists of all ages wrestle with the questions Chiang puts forth, and offer their responses to the complex and thoughtful Exhalation.
