Michael will dazzles audiences with 21st century Solo Percussion music, with 1 classic, that pushes the limits of electro-acoustic sound as applied to percussion!
There will be 3 works for Solo Snare Drum. 2 of them will blend electronic soundscapes while using different tools to draw beautiful sounds from the snare drum.
Next, will be 8 pieces of music for Solo Vibraphone with and without accompanying through composed electronic soundscapes. In lieu of using a traditional Vibraphone, Michael will be performing with a Pearl malletStation. Using this 3 octave digital mallet instrument, Michael will be using custom made synthesized sounds. Imagine hearing Bach with ethereal space-like sounds. 4 of these pieces are written for acoustic Vibraphone, but be performed using varied electronic sounds. 4 of these pieces will be playing using traditional Vibraphone sounds and paired with immersive soundscapes.
