Doug Perkins: Simple Songs; Momentary Expanse; Unchained Melody; XY / Davis, Perich, Sievers, Lang, Gordon

Notes & Reviews:

Doug Perkins's "Simple Songs" on New Focus represents his solo debut recording, and is a wonderful document of the dynamism that exists in the constantly growing percussion repertoire. Praised as a "percussion virtuoso" by the New York Times, Doug has assembled a kaleidoscopic collection of works for solo percussion, focusing on the extremes of virtuosity on one hand and percussion's music penchant for the art of tinkering on the other. From the haunting meditation of vibraphone and one-bit music in Tristan Perich's Momentary Expanse to the quirky noises of David Lang's Unchained Melody, and ending with Michael Gordon's monolithic XY, the range of the record is reflective of the vast scope of interests captivating the contemporary percussionist.
