Weekend Preview: Bang on a Can's Long Play Festival

Weekend Preview: Metropolis Ensemble Biophony at Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Biophony

The weather looks a bit iffy tomorrow, but the rain should hold off just long enough for Metropolis Ensemble's 2nd annual outdoor musical extravaganza Biophony at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, featuring the world premieres of 15 newly commissioned works. Over four hours, more than 100 musicians will perform throughout the BBG grounds, which should be teeming not only with flowers but also birds, as tomorrow is World Migratory Bird Day.

According to Metropolis, each work is a flexible, open-score piece, influenced by "the wide range of instrumentations, the topography of the site, and the freedom given to participants to explore and discover."

Admission is free with Garden admission. Tickets and info here.
