While secretly battling a fatal illness, rock icon David Bowie crafted what would be his final album: the stark yet adventurous Blackstar. The record takes some surprising jazz-fusion turns in the midst of the Starman facing his own mortality. Composer, performer, and MIT professor Ziporyn pays tribute to the late Bowie by transforming Blackstar into a cello concerto for acclaimed avant-garde cellist Beiser, backed by the Ambient Orchestra with musicians from Boston Conservatory at Berklee.
