After a few months of careful planning, some rehearsals and a few performances, I am proud to present … (drum roll) … SoundStruck Percussion. Earlier this year, a few of my percussionist friends from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and I had an idea to form a percussion ensemble. Thanks to our university, our families and some friendly contacts, we got a few of our first gigs, from which we got some great recordings and some great videos.
Being in this group also gave me a chance to play, record and capture on video a new percussion ensemble piece I recently composed, called ‘Junglemania’. It was part of a set performed during the uni’s small ensemble festival Crossbows. Many thanks to the audience, who I’m sure enjoyed being a part of the piece, and to the QLD Conservatorium for inviting us to perform.
Check out our band’s page, like us, comment, subscribe and keep an eye on it, because more great things are yet to come.
