About the Artists
Named a “one-woman dynamo” by the Boston Globe, Maria Finkelmeier is a percussionist, composer, professor, and new media artist. Whether it’s scoring conceptual art films, creating dance beats out of sourced audio samples from everyday life, to serving as both director and performer in multi-sensory public art installations, her work continually transcends both genre and medium.
Denver Nuckolls is a composer and performer focusing currently on the intersection between composed music, improvisation, and contemporary electronic systems. Using a variety of instruments and technologies, he aims to provide a reflective space for listeners to utilize external influence as a catalyst for inward exploration.
Thank you to Roundhead Brewing for hosting and partnering on this and future community arts events.
