“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.”
Max Ehrmann, Desiderata
During this period of isolation, So Percussion has embarked on a new project re-interpreting music from our third album Amid the Noise, with music by founding member Jason Treuting. Amid the Noise is designed to be modular and flexible, with many different possible versions.
Now also available: “September.”
As part of this project, inspired by our colleague Doug Perkins, we would like to invite YOU to participate. We are making the one-page scores to “June” and now also “September” available for free. Make your own version, perhaps on Youtube, and post it, tagging us @sopercussion on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, or email us a link at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions playlist! Click on the upper right-hand corner of the video to browse through the projects people have submitted so far.
Check out the instructional videos below, as well as the original version of “June” with video by Jenise Treuting.
All of Jason’s music is available for purchase on our website in the shop, including both volumes of Amid the Noise. Have fun!
