I'm so excited to be collaborating with old friends and phenomenal percussionists, arx duo, alongside the amazing pianists Amy Yang and Qing Jiang. We’re working an ambitious new eight-hands piece. Here’s how we’re describing it:

“Inspired by images from the New Horizons spacecraft and the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Atlas will explore sonic spaces with a sense of wonder about the universe, the spaces we inhabit within it, and the spaces we might someday traverse. The percussionists of arx duo will premiere the piece alongside pianists Amy Yang and Qing Jiang, always working around a single piano. They will chart many theatrical possibilities for spatial interaction, all four sometimes playing percussion at the corners of the stage, other times crowding elbow to elbow at the piano bench.”
