For NIU’s spring percussion ensemble concert, I visited as their guest artist. After giving a talk on the mathematics behind my piece, Quocíente, I performed with Greg Beyer and the NIU “bau house,” which is an ensemble dedicated to building contemporary repertoire for the modern berimbau. Greg and I performed Alex Lunsqui’s duo, Materiali, and the NIU Bau house (along with myself as a player) performed my berimbau sextet, Quocíente. It was a wonderful culmination of my previous experimentations in composition, berimbau, and working with the wonderful Brazilian composer, Alex Lunsqui. For more info visit arcomusical.
