Martin joins So Percussion for their truly staggering performance stride across the landscape of John Cage’s (shockingly groovy) percussion work, and not-necessarily percussive work…sometimes simultaneously, sometimes not. Really, these guys show their frightening level of skill here…don’t miss it. Here’s the text stolen from Toronto Arts Online:
A celebration of John Cage’s 100th birthday with striking textures from vibraphones, drums, aluminum space blankets, tin cans, synthesizers, laptops, and, of course, an amplified cactus! Program includes John Cage’s Credo in US, Imaginary Landscape #1, the controversial 4’33’’ and a world premiere by turntable composer Nicole Lizée (Canada) featuring special guests M.C. Schmidt, from Matmos, and electronica musician Dan Deacon.
