With its expansive sonic imagination and innovative productions, Sō Percussion has redefined the scope of the modern percussion ensemble. From Out a Darker Sea is inspired by the denizens of Seaham, England, a coastal town that has struggled to reinvent itself after the crushing loss of its mining industry. Integrating art, narrative, photography, film, and an original musical soundscape performed live, Sō Percussion captures the environment, personal stories, and aspirations of a community fighting against industrial decline and determined to forge a new identity.
