The Fisher/Lau Project (percussion duo of Dr. Abby Fisher and Dr. Matthew Lau) cultivates an international presence through engagements such as the Transplanted Roots Percussion Research Symposium (Brisbane, Australia), Percussive Arts Society International Convention (Indianapolis, USA), and Ensemble Mise-En Curator Series (Brooklyn, USA). F/L Project promotes the contemporary and avant garde aesthetic with clarity and approachability at concerts, engagement at masterclasses, and through their interactive social media presence. With repertoire extending from European master Philippe Manoury to esteemed compositional voices of today including Alex Temple and Jordan Munson, F/L Project works to perform music from a diverse range of composers.
