Alarm Will Sound

  • Distler Performance Hall, Tufts University

What are the origins of religion and supernatural ideas in human consciousness and culture, and how do they evolve into our religious traditions?  Groundbreaking composer Scott Johnson’s newest work, Mind Out of Matter, approaches this and other perennial questions of human existence with a lively, rock-infused musical sensibility.  Inspired by the ideas of renowned philosopher Daniel C. Dennett, Johnson weaves Dennett’s recorded voice into a rich instrumental score performed by Alarm Will Sound.
