‘We should learn how to look at life as streams of being, and not as separate entities. You of this moment are no longer you of a minute ago. There is no permanent entity within us, there is only a stream of being.’
(Thich Nhat Hanh Buddhist monk, teacher, writer, peace campaigner)

Dame Evelyn Glennie joins O/MODERNT Kammarorkester, under the direction of Hugo Ticciati, on a journey inspired by the hope to live in the moment, as the flow of music carries us out into the waters of the present impermanent.

Masson’s arresting work for solo snare drum leads directly into a free, orchestral improvisation. This is followed by the UK premiere of Jill Jarman’s Mindstream, a double concerto for violin, marimba/vibraphone and orchestra. A stream of musical consciousness in continual flux, Mindstream reflects, in part, the Buddhist view of impermanence, which implies not only change but also a ceaseless letting go. Relinquishing grief, anger, love, joy and finally ego, we can, as the idiom suggests, wholly let ourselves go and experience life as joyful abandonment. Musically, the listener is invited continually to let go of motif, idea, phrase and finally an entire soundscape in order to remain fully present in the passing moment.
