beyond this point + Matthew Duvall
beyond this point is joined by Matthew Duvall of Eighth Blackbird for an evening celebrating the numerous, varied approaches to percussion performance. The program’s first half features a collection of immersive, contemplative, and powerful works that explore the very substance of what defines the world of percussion: the base materials (stone, seed, metal, skin, cactus, wood) activated to musical purpose. The second half features Mauricio Kagel’s wildly absurd Dressur, a half-hour trio utilizing over 50 instruments and non-instruments--creating sound of theater and theater out of sound.

BEYOND THIS POINT
beyond this point is an exploratory percussion collaboration seeking to investigate resonances and intersections across several artistic practices. The collaboration aims to engage diverse audiences on multiple levels, developing a platform in which to create and perform works that are coalesced along the resonances between artistic mediums from their point of inception.

MATTHEW DUVALL
