In a spring reverb, a solenoid is used to generate a magnetic field that imparts vibrations to the unit's springs. In Spring Reverb 2002, the performers generate electro-acoustic fields that impart vibrations throughout the SD/TJ trans-border region. This bi-national project continues the steady development and growth of a creative music scene in San Diego, and promotes an ongoing dialogue across the San Ysidro border. This trans-border space is a central focus for Trummerflora activities. Geographical, cultural, aesthetic... this transgressive music has little regard for borders or labels. No dogma. No idiom. Creative music is about choice, freedom, personal expression and collective action. Rebirth. Bloom. Flourish. Spring Reverb.
"Trummerflora, or rubble plants and trees, are a special phenomenon unique to heavily bombed urban areas. The bomb acts as a plow, mixing rubble fragments with the earth which often contain seeds dormant for a century or more. These seeds come to light and those that can live in this new and special earth grow and flourish."
The Trummerflora Collective is an independent group of musicmakers dedicated to experimental and improvisational musics. The collective embraces the pluralistic nature of creative music as an important means of artistic expression for the individual and the community, and provides an atmosphere that nurtures the creative development of its member artists.
