Glass Percussion Project

last night i attend the glass percussion project at the national museum. the set up was pretty – delicate and fragile, even delicious like lollipops.

the performance however was not what i expected. for about an hour, Eugene Ughetti made the glass squeak, howl and mourn without momentum or tempo. it literally sounded like random wind chimes, microphone feedback and clanging chemistry laboratory apparatus.

i’m sure there was very sophisticated audio and precision engineering involved but i think i would very much prefer the catchy crash! boom! bang! of stomp.
