After more than three decades of continuous collaboration, the four master percussionists of NEXUS are internationally revered, not just for their virtuosity both as individual and group performers, and their innovation and creativity, but for their ability to create extraordinary music out of just about anything: Swiss cowbells; Chinese drums; Tibetan prayer bowls; Middle Eastern hand drums and Southeast Asian water buffalo bells, to name just a few. They create a staggering array of sounds and tones out of the broadest array of percussion instruments imaginable. With a repertoire ranging from military music to the novelty ragtime of the 1920s, from the haunting rhythms of Africa to the ground-breaking compositions of Japanese master Toru Takemitsu, John Cage and Steve Reich, NEXUS delivers a stunningly virtuosic spectacle of sound, rhythm and movement. (June 2014)
NEXUS will perform Sunday, January 25, 2015 at 5 p.m. in Watson Hall.
