So Percussion

They're awesome! They're coming to my town on Sunday, and I wrote about it here. Probably worth pointing out that (a) my editor deserves credit for the "kicker" (as they call it in journalism)—my draft had a pretty weak conclusion, and I ran out of town just after submitting it; and also (b) I didn't say enough here about the Meehan/Perkins duo, who are commissioning a fair chunk of repertoire in their own right and who gave great interview. Their site is here. And I hope you've already found the new So blog! Oh yeah, and here's the program for that concert, as far as I know—

So: Drumming, Pt. 1 by Steve Reich Meehan/Perkins: Once Removed by John Fitz Rogers Yale: Village Burial with Fire by James Wood;The So-Called Laws of Nature, pt. 2 (I think) by David Lang; and Threads by Paul Lansky.
