Percussion for Apartments – Full Series Premiere
Justin and I have been working together on this project for a couple of years. Each piece takes a single percussion instrument played quietly, at volumes appropriate for a percussionist living in an apartment. It then gets looped and transformed by a custom-built SuperCollider patch, in real time.
The four pieces are written for conga, suspended cymbal, glockenspiel, and pandeiro (Brazilian tambourine). Also on the program, works by Kaj Duncan David, Stuart S. Smith, and Michael Gordon.
