Flow Through at Fog x Hill

  • Arnold Arboretum Hunnewell Hillside 125 Arborway Boston, MA, 02130 United States (map)

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, 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.

PERFORMANCE TIMES: 4:30, 5:30, 6:30 (sunset)
FREE and open to the Public

Rain date: September 23, 2018
