Featured Composition: In Other Words for Solo Percussion and Tape by Joseph Pereira

In Other Words (written for Chris Lamb) pairs percussion with exotic languages (recorded on tape) in three continuous movements. In each movement, the percussion parts help "translate" and highlight the quintessential aspects of each of the associated languages: pandeiro with Japanese; brushes on drums and cymbals with Portuguese; gongs, bongos, woodblocks, and claves with Mandarin. The unique pairings of exotic percussion with each language creates a whole new colorful sound world in this great solo percussion showpiece. For more info, click HERE.
