Sounds and ideas from Asian cultures — ranging from gamelan to the I Ching, from the qanun to the Zen koan — are central to 20th-century percussion repertoire. Experience and explore these cross-cultural connections in an evening of Asian and Asian-inspired compositions from John Cage, Tan Dun and James Tenney, performed by Christopher Graham, from Stony BrookUniversity’s Department of Music, and other members of New York’s acclaimed Iktus Percussion. Adding to the rhythmic and timbral feast offered by Iktus is newly commissioned choreography by Malini Srinivasan, from Stony Brook University’s Department of Asian and Asian American Studies, and Alison Russell and Joya Powell, from Stony Brook’s Center for Dance and Somatic Learning.
This performance will be held on Tuesday, April 9, at 7 pm in the Charles B. Wang Center Theater.
