Sandbox Percussion

Details

Vale of Glamorgan Festival is thrilled to present the exuberant and flamboyant Sandbox Percussion – the percussion quartet from New York described by the Washington Post as “revitalizing the world of contemporary music [with] jaw-dropping virtuosity”. This young quartet will be bringing with them an unconventional assortment of instruments, from plant pots to marimbas, wine glasses to rooks (an electronic instrument which uses infrared sensors to interpret hand movement).

The performance takes a special look at new music emerging from America in recent years, and features the world premiere of Ben Wallace’s new work for Dutch Street Organ and percussion. Wallace’s music spans a wide range of styles from chamber and orchestral, to disco and samba, and occasionally into the video game remix world. In 2017, VOGF commissioned Ben to write a piece for six pianos which received outstanding reviews following its premiere performance by Grand Band at St David’s Hall.
