The John Serry commissioning project that I was a part of has completed and the performance was at PASIC 2010. A video of one part of the piece is now up at the Vic Firth website.Ji Hye Jung is performing it in the middle of a larger video containing PASIC highlights.
Start here and then click on “Concert / Marching Highlights”. It is about 1/4 of the way into the video and labeled clearly.
This year’s Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC) is going on right now in Indianapolis, Indiana. I will not be able to attend but I wanted to post a couple highlights from “afar”.
The main one is selections from “Intermediate Masterworks for Marimba” will be at the Sagamore Ballroom today at 2pm. One early peek at a track from that performance from Thomas Burritt is “Have You Met Lydia?” which you can listen to at his Tumblr site.
Also be sure to stop by the Steve Weiss Music booth and say hi to (in my opinion) the best percussion store in the US. Pick up a copy of both volumes of the “Intermediate Masterworks for Marimba” book as well as the double CD which is pictured here from the @steveweissmusic Twitter account. If you are not at PASIC, buy Volume 1, Volume 2, and the double CD online!
I would love to hear how the ZMF 2009 session was received. Feel free to comment or include #pasic09 in your tweets so we can all catch the “buzz”!
