REVOLUTION: THE CAGE CENTURY
"Percussion music is revolution." - John Cage
The acclaimed Chicago-based percussion ensemble THIRD COAST PERCUSSION hails the centenary of the groundbreaking American artist JOHN CAGE with the release of its first full-length album, and its debut on MODE RECORDS. Join Third Coast Percussion on May 25, 2012 at Mayne Stage for a concert celebrating the album release and 100 years of musical innovation.
Praised by Time Out Chicago for “chops, polish, and youthful joy in performing,” Third Coast Percussion uses an impressive array of percussion instruments to create a performance experience like no other. With exceptional talent and dedicated artistry, this “sonically spectacular” (Chicago Tribune) quartet combines the driving intensity of drums, the beautiful warmth of marimbas and vibraphones, and the surprisingly exotic sounds of everyday objects to make music that is playful, memorable and profound. In performances around the country, the Chicago-based ensemble has swiftly gained national attention for effortlessly combining the energy of a rock concert with the precision and sophistication of classical chamber music.
