So is: Eric Beach, Josh Quillen, Adam Sliwinski, and Jason Treuting
Since 1999, So Percussion has been creating music that explores all the extremes of emotion and musical possibility. Although the drum is one of humanity's most ancient instruments, Europe and America have only recently begun to explore its full potential, aided by explosions of influence and experimentation from around the world. In the 20th Century, musical innovators like Edgard Varese, John Cage, Steve Reich, and Iannis Xenakis brought these instruments out from behind the traditional orchestra and gave them new voice. It was excitement about these composers and the sheer fun of playing together that inspired the members of So to begin performing together while students at the Yale School of Music.
