Sneak Peak at Tower Music 5tet

Here’s a few backstage pix of the preparations for the premiere of my TOWER MUSIC PERCUSSION QUINTET. Terry Longshore directs Left Edge Percusion at Southern Oregon University.

Here’s drummer Reed Bentley at his kit with myriad cymbals, an extra snare, large Roto Tom, wood blocks and his iPad from which to follow the music.

Then we see some of the other instruments to be used (out of 82!). You’ll see a tam tam (the large gong), Thai gongs, a mounted afuche/cabasa, bass drum w/mounted cymbal, a snare, wood blocks, shaker, cowbell, and a covered vibraphone (I think…it’s covered, LOL!)

TOWER MUSIC- PERCUSSION 5TET is supported by New Music USA. To follow the project as it unfolds, visit my project page:
