an immersive audio and visual journey through the life of water

Aug 30 - Sept 1, 2018


Water is the soul of the Earth.

In every drop, there is a story.

Emerging from the ocean, all water is on this journey, yearning to make its way back home.

Explore society's mythic relationship to water and reawaken to that ancient connection.

Bridgetown Orchestra, the same multidisciplinary ensemble that brought you Overview Effect, is back with a cutting-edge new production: On Being Water.

This immersive audio and visual journey will leave you "moved at times and dazzled throughout." (praise for Bridgetown Orchestra from Oregon Arts Watch)

Experience the story with live string quartet and 3-D sound spatialization, surrounded by 32 speakers and 4 floor-to-ceiling projection surfaces.

Conceptualized and composed by Bridgetown Orchestra Artistic Director, Tylor Neist, this production features music and imagery that ripple around the room, enveloping you in complete audio and visual immersion.

Join us for this illuminating, deep listening experience unlike any other, and tap into the collective unconscious that is WATER.
