School of Music Faculty Artist Recital: Funky Music for Percussion and Sax

Faculty Artist Recital: Funky Music for Percussion and Sax, Tuesday, November 18, 2014, 5PM, Gildenhorn Recital Hall

Join percussion faculty member Dr. Lee Hinkle and his guests for an evening of unusual beats and funky rhythms.

The performance will feature a world-premiere composition by doctoral student composer and beat-maker Geoff Sheil for saxophone, marimba and beat boxer. Other hip songs will include Philippe Hurel’s monumental jazz-influenced work À bâton rompus for saxophone and percussion; John Fitz Rogers’ soothing jam Release for saxophone and marimba; some sax duets to rock your socks off; Bruce Hamilton’s Motion Stasis, a drum set solo with pre-recorded loops in the manner of John Bonham; Stuart Saunders Smith’s Lazarus, a story with some music played on a vibraphone; and an epic djembe tribal groove trio by Iannis Xenakis called Okho.
