Kahane is no stranger to collaboration. In his varied career, he is worked with Sufjan Stevens, the Kronos Quartet, playwright Seth Bockley, & his father, conductor & pianist Jeffrey Kahane, to name a few. In 2014, BAM commissioned him, along with Tony-winning director John Tiffany & set designer Christine Jones, to change The Ambassador in to a stage show, which featured towers of papers that mimicked the skyline of Los Angeles. Recently, he wrote the words for a song called “Sleek White Child,” from the Punch Brothers’ latest album, with the band’s Chris Thile sending him a melody by iPhone & Kahane responding with words. “It was a 21st-century collaboration,” Kahane says with a laugh.
