SOU Percussion Group Records Track For CD

Feb 15, 2018

Be prepared to stretch your definition of music.  Because a recently released CD features Southern Oregon University's Percussion Ensemble performing a piece by the boundary-stretching composer Mark Applebaum

And the piece includes such exotic instrumentation as bubble wrap.  That's right, the stuff that you use to pack fragile items into boxes.  Popping the bubbles makes a sound, a percussive one at that. 

Terry Longshore directs the Percussion Ensemble. 

He visits the studio with the CD, while we catch up with Mark Applebaum on the project by phone.
