Brian Chase, John Colpitts and Ulrich Krieger—three innovators working the edges of rock and experimental composition—stir up pulsating soundscapes, at once intense and meditative. This three-part program focuses on just-intonation percussion instruments, used here as expansive sonic tools rather than drivers of rhythm. Chase, drummer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, opens with a new iteration of his ongoing Drums and Drones for solo percussion and electronics, with live video projections by Ursula Scherrer. Krieger, of Metal Machine Trio (with the late Lou Reed) and Text of Light, follows with the nuanced Hit Men for percussion and electronics, revealing seldom-heard acoustic properties of snares, toms and cymbals. Closing out the program is Oneida drummer Colpitts, aka Kid Millions, who leads an ensemble in performing Ur Eternity—a rockin’ drone maelstrom for 10 percussion pieces and two basses.
