Things are changing (April 2022 Newsletter)

Thursday, April 21st, 2022

…okay, so perhaps our recent name change announcement was uploaded on April 1st, and perhaps that technically makes it a joke. So what? Imagine the possibilities! When’s the last time you’ve drummed with a meterstick by your side!?

Despite this, we have some very cool, very real projects to share with you! Whether you’re hungry to hear some new music, learn some fascinating perspective, or get teaching, there’s something for you in our April Newsletter.

Latest Releases – APRIL 2022

Friday, April 15th, 2022

Despite our… “very real” name change a couple weeks ago, we’ve been hard at work on some exciting projects, and we’re happy to be able to share them with you! Unique highlights include: multiple works with electronics (vibraphone, marimba, ensemble), two incredibly flexible percussion ensemble collections with adaptable instrumentation (1, 2), and a book dedicated to blowing your metronome skills wide open.

For a quick overview of all new releases, check out these brief highlight reels!
