Southern Oregon University Percussion Ensemble perform John Luther Adams’ Strange and Sacred Noise and Michael Pisaro’s Ricefall
John Luther Adams: Strange and Sacred Noise
John Luther Adams’ radical vision is to use music to describe how we live in the world, in particular how nature changes us, and how we change it, combining a rugged sense of the elemental with a real concern for the health of the earth. At LONG PLAY, his monumental cycle is performed by Left Edge Percussion and the Southern Oregon University Percussion Ensemble.
Michael Pisaro: Ricefall
Rice falls, like a gentle rain, from the hands of the performers, onto a variety of objects and surfaces. Ricefall is part sonic environment, part visual installation, part intensely quiet and dramatic performance. Performed by the Southern Oregon University Percussion Ensemble.
