drum nation post

drum nation concert has passed.  after many crazy hours of prep and rehearsal it went off quite well.  we played a number of traditional and contemporary compositions and everyone fit on stage….i was especially pleased at the warm response we got to the more contemporary pieces we played with traditional instruments.  my contention is upheld—audiences are quite happy out of their element.

the encore was reich’s clapping music, with the audience playing part 1 (the unchanging one).   my fiendish mission continues.
