A New Album, a New Piece, and a New State!


Dear friends,

We are incredibly excited that our most recent album, Bathymetry, with music by Matt McBane, is out in the world! Bathymetry is unlike anything we’ve recorded before, and the brain-tingling yet groovy music is sure to transport you to the depths of the ocean—where the composition takes its inspiration. This album gets its name, bathymetry, from the scientific study of the depths of the ocean floors, and it’s an apt name for the series of contrasting soundscapes on this album.

Bathymetry is available on all streaming services. Check it out on Bandcamp here!

On December 16th, we’ll perform the world premiere of Bathymetry at National Sawdust in Brooklyn. Join us!

You can find more information and reserve your tickets here: Bathymetry World Premiere at National Sawdust.

This Wednesday, November 16th, we’ll perform George Crumb’s American Songbook I, “The River of Life” at St. Paul’s Chapel in NYC at 1pm.

Like Crumb’s other songbooks, Songbook I is a cycle of wildly colorful arrangements of hymns, spirituals, and revival tunes. We adore Crumb’s songbooks, and we’re excited to collaborate with the exceptional singers from the Choir of Trinity Wall Street and with pianist, friend, and consummate musician, Dan Schlosberg.

We hope you’ll join us in person or virtually for this performance. The concert is free and will be live streamed on Trinity Wall Street’s homepage if you’d like to watch from the comfort of your home.

This Saturday, November 19th, we’re heading to “Big Sky Country” and performing Seven Pillars as part of the Bozeman Symphony’s experimental series, “Current Commotion”. This concert series highlights new music by living composers and we are thrilled to bring Seven Pillars to Montana.

Rocky Mountain friends—we hope to see you on Saturday! For more information and to reserve your tickets (they’re going fast!) follow this link: Current Commotion—Seven Pillars.

Applications to study at the University of Missouri – Kansas City for the Fall of 2023 accepted until December 15th, 2022.
Our students at UMKC have been hard at work this past year and we are so proud of all they’ve accomplished since we started working with them last summer.

As a teaching quartet, we’ve been able to work closely with our students in private lessons, chamber music, large ensembles, studio classes, and more, and we are happy to call Kansas City our home-away-from-home!

If you or someone you know is a young percussionist looking to dive into the exciting life of a conservatory student, consider furthering your studies as a member of the percussion studio at UMKC. At UMKC, students get the opportunity to work with world-class faculty in ensembles, lessons, and classes, and they get to learn from the pioneers of their craft in a small conservatory environment.

The UMKC Conservatory is now accepting applications for the Fall of 2023. The deadline to apply is December 15th.

You can find more information on application requirements, audition dates, and life at UMKC here.
We’ve got more coming in the next few months that we’re thrilled to share with you. Check in on our website for a full season listing.

Your friends,

Ian, Jonny, Terry, and Victor
