Someone at the London Philharmonic Orchestra has a lot time on their hands and I am so glad! Can you clap-along with Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring?
I hope everyone knows Ivan Trevino’s music! If not, visit his website or YouTube and start listening. (Watch Catching Shadows (Marimba Duo)). Crossroads for marimba and cajon, was written for Bryce Turner.
Ivan’s says that Crossroads is an intersection of rhythmic complexity and melodic simplicity. Throughout the piece, the two players share complex unison rhythms. At times, the cajón player also plays deskbells with feet.
Matt Penland and Jake Harpster performing “flowerpot music no. 1” by Elliot Cole. I saw this piece live at the 2018 Northwest Percussion Festival and I fell in love with it. This is just one of many great pieces by Elliot Cole.
This is a beautiful performance of “Japurá River” by Philip Glass. I could listen to this all day. This video is performed & arranged by Third Coast Percussion (Sean Connors, Robert Dillon, Peter Martin, David Skidmore).
