As the festival tide rolls out of Cork, we take some time to celebrate the wave it has created with this intimate evening presented by Bryce Dessner (The National). The evening will showcase Crash Ensemble, So Percusson and Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) with special appearances by Bryce himself, Aaron Dessner (The National), Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), Yuki Numata Resnick and Nadia Sirota.
So Percussion is an American percussion quartet based in New York City. Composed of Josh Quillen, Adam Sliwinski, Jason Treuting, and Eric Cha-Beach, the group is well known for recording and touring internationally and for its work with composers such as Steve Reich, David Lang, Paul Lansky, Martin Bresnick, Steven Mackey and Arvo Pärt.
Originally formed when the members were students of Robert van Sice at the Yale School of Music, the group also continues to play works from the standard repertoire of percussion ensemble music – including works by John Cage, George Crumb, and Iannis Xenakis. In addition to their work with composers, the members of So Percussion produce original music, including large scale evening-length pieces.
