Jason Treuting Amid the Noise
Sō Percussion’s manifesto: ‘to create a new model of egalitarian artistic collaboration that respects history, champions innovation and curiosity, and creates an essential social bond through service to our audiences and our communities.’
This American quartet is all about innovation and re-invention. Performing pieces by Steve Reich, the National’s Bryce Dessner and Caroline Shaw – watch out for some very strange instruments indeed – they also present to the world the chord stick (*a brand new instrument that’s a cross between a dulcimer and an electric guitar.) And to finish the show, RNCM percussion students join the group on stage to perform a hypnotic suite of pieces by the quartet’s very own Jason Treuting, blending Reich, Brian Eno and Aphex Twin.
