KMFA Classical’s Offbeat Series announces the world premiere of Golden Hornet’s INSECTUM, featuring new works by Susie Ibarra, Jeffrey Zeigler, and Graham Reynolds. In partnership with the nonprofit commissioning and presenting organization Golden Hornet, the evening will include a pre-concert chat with the featured artists and consulting scientists.

INSECTUM dives into the fascinating, though often overlooked, lives of arthropods. In addition to shining a light on these resilient creatures, the performance also offers a cautionary tale as to the dangers of climate change and the loss of species diversity.

INSECTUM is a sonic exploration of the resilience and beauty of the world’s oldest living multicellular creatures; arthropods. Originally inspired by the pioneering imagery of artist-entomologist Maria Sibylla Merian, and further by consultation with entomologists Alex Wild and Jo-anne Holley at The University of Texas at Austin, the event aims to not only bring audiences “down” to these creatures’ level but also to reframe our relationship with them.
