Emerald Necklace Conservancy: silence | visible
5:00 PM17:00

Emerald Necklace Conservancy: silence | visible

silence | visible is a 7 minute work composed and directed by Lucy Yao for quartet with flutes and voices specifically written in response to Fujiko Malaya’s fog sculptures. The piece aims to collaborate with Fog and its amorphous qualities and engage in a dialogue with nature’s fluctuating variables. Fog, which blurs boundaries between the beginning and end, inspired silence | visible to explore the cycles of life that are present in nature, and a wish to relinquish control to the uncertainty of the “how”, and “when”, and more on events as they are happening at that moment. At any given day, nature can give shape to the fog depending on variables that are completely controlled by climate. In this live performance, layers of sound form around the sculpture in an on-site specific work by pianist and composer Lucy Yao.

This project is performed as a response to Fujiko Nakaya’s FOGxFlo at the Franklin Park Ruins. Listeners are welcome to walk into the dense mass of sound and fog to experience the work. silence | visible is made possible by the Berklee Interdisciplinary Institute and the Emerald Necklace Conservancy. 
And of course, it would not be possible without the help and collaboration with performers Rose Hegele, Morgan Gates, Antonina January, and Caroline Shaffer!

There will be two performances of this multi-disciplinary work on Sunday October 28 afternoon at 5:00 and 5:15 PM at Fog x Island, Olmsted Park. Fog x Island is one of the five fog installation sites and can be found at 56 Pond Avenue, Brookline 02445. Further directions can be found here:

Information on the project can be found here (the time needs to be updated on the site):
