Buckyball Music was founded by musicians seeking to re-align the relationship between the artist and the music 'business'. The ever-changing platform of how music is enjoyed by listeners has resulted in regularly re-inventing ourselves and our services, and following the ideas and inspiration of visionary humanist Buckminster Fuller. One of our goals as artists is to connect music with science in entertaining and enlightening performances.
