Latest Recording

Drumkit Quartets, a collaboration between Glenn Kotche and Sō Percussion, runs the expressive gamut of percussive instrumentation, from the marimba-based “Drumkit Quartet #51” to the hand-cranked sirens that open “Drumkit Quartet #50,” which channels the futurist manifesto of Luigi Russolo’s “art of noise,” spiced with a little John Cage and Luc Ferrari. A rich sonic tapestry of rhythmic exploration, audio collage and third-mind improv, Drumkit Quartets actually goes well beyond the drumkit — which is to be expected, given the feverishly inventive artists behind the recording.

Latest Acclaim

"... a haunting and often deeply moving requiem for an industry and its people....

"... the collage of powerful dialogue and often bleakly beautiful, mesmeric music emphasises the sense of loss and the sacrifices of those who built the nation. One emerges with a deeper respect for all who spent – and even gave – their lives bringing us the black stuff."
