Tromp International Percussion Competition Prize Winner Garrett Mendelow has commissioned a major new work for solo percussion and computer interaction from Matthew Burtner. The percussionist and composer met at the Nief Norf Festival, in Greenville SC where Garrett performed in the premiere of Burtner’s “Six Ambient Extensions”. The new work will explore ideas of materiality, ecoacoustics and human-computer-environment interaction through a virtuosic solo percussion part. The piece will premiere in 2014, and will be part of a new solo recital series and recording project. For bookings please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
