So Percussion has just completed several performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic over the past week. They did the US premiere of man made by Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer David Lang. To listen to the complete performance (including Mahler 5), visit NPR Archive Recording. They also preformed David Lang’s the so-called laws of nature Michael Gordon’s Timber on The Green Umbrella Concert.
This video features So Percussion performing on a NPR Tiny Desk Concert. The performance includes:
Jason Treuting: Life Is [ ]
John Cage: 24 X 24
John Cage: Living Room Music: “To Begin”
If you are not familiar with So Percussion, please go out and check out some of their recordings and videos. One of my favorite videos is Steven Mackey’s It Is Time.
