Kinetic Ontology presents an evening of original percussion works
Batterie-en-Valise: music for two percussionists and five suitcases
“…this performance is sure to astound and confound.” -Classicalite
Part found-object sonic sculpture, part new music performance, and part interactive conversation about human relationships with objects, Batterie-en-Valise is currently presenting a suite of five original compositions entitled, “The Question Concerning Technology.” Recent performances include HERE Arts Center and Barbès; coming soon to World Maker Faire, 2013.
Five gutted-out vintage suitcases – each housing a collection of carefully curated found objects – transform into a cacophonous jungle gym of repurposed harmonic assemblages and other dangling curiosities.
Created by Brooklyn-based found-percussionist Eric Farber, featuring Dylan Thurston, the music juxtaposes a long history of traditional rhythms with hyper-contemporary breakbeats and object-oriented “samples.”
TIGUE Percussion Trio
TIGUE Percussion Trio is the latest project from Matt Evans, Amy Garapic, and Carson Moody. Founded in early 2012, TIGUE presents contemporary music of friends, contemporaries, and themselves through a lens of percussion elements. TIGUE has recently presented at The Stone, The Color Field Festival and The Beethoven Festival.

Kataoka was the first percussionist to be chosen for The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Chamber Music Society Two, a three-season residency program for emerging artists offering high-profile performance opportunities.
