This took place at the Winter Garden at the World Financial Center as part of the River to River Festival and Ecstatic Summer Festival in NYC, presented by Brookfield Arts.

Ecstatic Summer curated the concept of commissioning 7 new pieces written for percussion or brass ensembles.   The music was incredible! Pieces by Greg Saunier, Dave Douglas, Susie Ibarra, Holly Herndon, People Get Ready, and Son Lux!

I wrote a piece for percussion – 16 drums, 6 table tennis players, and 2 air horns.

The main percussion was by the incredible percussion ensemble Mantra!!! Also featuring drum kit performances by Andrew Barker and Greg Fox.

And epic table tennis performances by SPiN pros, NYU players, and the AACCT !!!! Thanks to SPiN NYC for donating the ping pong tables and hosting the after party.

Thanks again to all that participated and to Ecstatic NYC! Was a truly inspiring event!
