Flow Through at Fog x Hill

Flow Through is a 15 minute work composed and directed by Maria Finkelmeier for large ensemble in a outdoor setting. Featuring thirty performers (brass players, singers, and percussionists), the work is inspired by the fluidity and importance of water to living organisms. Flow Through reflects the power of this compound, bringing awe, serenity, catastrophe, and breath to our planet. It draws connections between the human spirit and natural world, creating a moment in which one cannot be without the other.

Performed in collaboration with and response to Fujiko Nakaya’s Fog x FLO at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, the musicians will be placed on the perimeter of Hunnewell Hillside, some starting on the path above, and descending to the open space, just as the fog ripples over the hillside, and others weaving in between listeners. Audience members are welcome to sit and listen, or wander through the hillside as the sonic experience guides them.

DATE: September 22, 2018
PERFORMANCE TIMES: 4:30, 5:30, 6:30 (sunset)
ADDRESS: 125 Arborway, Boston, MA 02130 (located just past the Hunnewell Building)
FREE and open to the Public

Rain date: September 23, 2018

A version of Flow Through was first performed as a part of Make Music Boston's Water Music on the Charles River Esplanade on June 21, 2018. Kadence Arts is thrilled to bring this piece to the Fog x FLO installation at the Arnold Arboretum, the host of our 2016 production of John Luther Adams' Inuksuit

More about #marimbagram 

rolf-landberg-2017_sm.jpg

Rolf Landberg is a percussionist, drummer, composer and music producer based in Stockholm, Sweden.

"A lot of my music grows out of improvisation. When improvising, I often return to certain patterns and structuresa scale, a mood, a groove, or an emotion. The pieces on Marimbagram are crystallized improvisational ideas. The musical structures have been condensed into short pieces with clear forms. Each piece is completely improvised, recorded in a single take from beginning to end. The exception is the Argentinian tango-inspired ”Crossroads,” which began as an improvisation, but quickly grew into a more substantial piece combining fixed melodies and harmonies with sections of improvisation." Listen here! 

More about Marimba Cabaret

Marimba Cabaret brings a set of songs and stories featuring musical theater, pop hits and classical covers re-imagined for marimba, vibraphone and voice. Greg Jukes and Brian Calhoon play marimba, sing, confess, and (at times) stand 7-feet tall. Guaranteed to include new songs and special guests at each show, there’s something for everyone in this eclectic evening of music.
