Hybrid Hybrid Event

UWM Percussion Ensemble
The UWM Percussion Ensemble presents Undiscovered Worlds, featuring soloist Andy Miller (Music Director in the Dance Department) on the premiere performance of Mitchell Beck’s new work for percussion ensemble. The solo part for Beck’s “Undiscovered Worlds” explores the timbres and techniques of folkloric Colombian instruments like the maracas llanerasmaracón, and gaita flutes against a percussive backdrop of pulsing harmonies and evocative “found sound” instrumental textures. The program will also include works written exclusively for unpitched percussion, including Lou Harrison’s “Suite of Percussion” and Bruce Hamilton’s “Raptures of Undream,” as well as works for only pitched percussion with “Mallet Quartet” by Emily Joy Sullivan, “Sweet Dreams and Time Machines” by Michael Burritt, and Andrea Venet’s “Refrakt.”
