With innovative multi-genre original productions, sensational interpretations of modern classics, and an “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam,” (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.

Amid the Noise

Residency
Jason Treuting's Amid The Noise is a communal music-making project that can occur with a flexible number of musicians in almost any combination. Like Terry Riley's In C, this work maintains its identity and integrity through wildly different realizations.

Steve Reich's "Drumming"

3 day Residency
Drumming is one of the core works that formed Sō Percussion. For many years, through three recordings and dozens of performances, it has shaped our perspective and our practice. We often visit music schools to teach Drumming in a residency, where five or more percussionists join us to stage the entire 75-minute work.
