Description

International soloist and percussion educator She-e Wu comoposed Blue Identity for the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Paris and its director Frédéric Macarez.

After premiering in Paris in 2002, it received its U.S. premiere at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC).
