The Trummerflora Collective is an independent group of music makers that 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 members.

Trummerflora is collective in residence at Voz Alta where they curate Other Ideas, a forum for new independent music.

"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." - Helen and Newton Harrison

4th Annual Festival of Creative Music, Dance and Art

create + bloom + flourish

Home | Schedule | Bios

Trummerflora Collective presents the 4th Annual Spring Reverb, a festival of original music, dance, and visual art. Performers from Ireland, Japan, Greece, Mexico, Canada and the US come together for this celebration of creativity. The performances will be held downtown at the Museum of Contemporary Art on Thursday, June 2nd, Wonder Bread Building in conjunction with Sushi Performance and Visual Art on Friday, June 3rd and Voz Alta Project on Saturday, June 4th. Creative music workshops will be held throughout the community and a visual arts exhibit (including video) will be presented also at Voz Alta Project.

These musicians and artists represent a fascinating international culture of aesthetic risk-takers who push the limits of their imagination (and ours). Each has a unique approach unfettered by any unifying philosophy - no dogmas, simply a committment to artistic exploration, freedom, and the creative process.

Trummerflora continues to explore the theme of collaboration by hosting numerous improvisatory interactions between the collective and their invited guest artists during Spring Reverb '05. They will also expand their work with an evening of collaborations with Lower Left, a postmodern performance collective with an emphasis in dance.
