Celebrate the release this Sat, Oct 22 at 8pm.. in a Brooklyn Bound concert at our studio! Darian and Bergamot will be there.
“As we individuate, we connect and identify with the entire human family.”
– Carl Jung
Individuate was commissioned through the Sō Percussion New Work Development Program by Sō Percussion and Bergamot Quartet. It is composed in a way that allows any instrumentalist to perform the piece, and the piece can also be performed by groups of multiples of four players. On this album, there are three versions – by Sō Percussion, by Bergamot Quartet, and by Sō Percussion and Bergamot together.
Kid Gunner Brother and Stephon Clark were both written for the Sō Percussion Summer Institute.
