Drum Lesson with Dalquister

This is a multi-media performance piece involving percussion
(timpani, steel drum, tabla, marimba, vibes, drum set, and more), dance,
juggling, and a bit of acting.  This piece serves as the multi-percussion
piece required for my Masters in Percussion.  A childhood friend, Michael
Dalquist, who played drums for the band Silkworm, died this past summer.  
I obtained some of his drum tracks from their producer in Chicago, Steve
Albini.  I wrote a piece and created an audio track to interact with
during the live performance. The audio track features Michael~Rs drumming.  
It will be very important to document this performance with audio and
video recordings.
