I attended a program of percussion music at Howard Hall last night. I was kinda expecting some Gene Krupa and or Japanese drum music. I got neither, I got something new to me. Something that has been around for a long time. American classical percussion music. Here are some scenes from the performance.
The title of one piece is "Fractalia". The program notes state "The kaleidoscopic fractured melodies within Fractalia are created by passing a repeated figure through four players in different registers of the marimba." I think so.
I repeat. I do not want any more comments about me having no culture.
