About

With innovative multi-genre original productions, sensational interpretations of modern classics, and an “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam,” (The New Yorker), Sō Percussion has redefined the scope and role of the modern percussion ensemble, placing it at the leading edge of 21st-century music.

Songs That Are Hard to Sing is an octet composed by Dan Trueman for the JACK Quartet and Sō Percussion. In this album a bricolage of familiar sounds become ethereal. Piano melodies lilt peculiarly through bitKlavier, a prepared digital piano invented by Trueman that would make John Cage proud that “makes all the notes between the keys become available.” The human voice becomes startling when the untrained voice of a member from Sō Percussion sings for just a few bars in the album’s closing moments.

Latest Acclaim

"Sō Percussion, a Brooklyn-based quartet founded in 2001, has become one of the most virtuosic and imaginatively theatrical of these groups. It is also an ensemble that enjoys confounding expectations, as it did on Saturday evening, when it presented 'The Quartet Reimagined' at Chapin Hall, the ornate auditorium of Williams College’s music school."
