New works for percussion ensemble at Riverside

 COMMON Time is a program of new works for percussion, presented by Synergy Percussion, one of Australia’s most venerated contemporary music ensembles.

It’s about time, shared time, common shared principles, sounds and instruments. It’s about a time and place – and the placement of time.

The swing, the groove, the space, the clave – 2/3, 3/2 – shared and common elements.

In Common Time, Synergy Percussion brings together percussive brethren through the pairing of Western 20th & 21st century art music, improvising jazz groove and Afro-Latin percussion artists – and more – to explore the differences and commonalities of their artistic approaches.

This dynamic program features living composers whose backgrounds and musical training are as diverse as percussion.

Works by Gai Byrant, Ryuji Hamada, Lee McIver, Kaoru Watanabe, Sandy Evans, and Ed Goyer are performed by a cohort of virtuoso percussionists drawn from across the spectrum of the world of drumming.

Common Time is living art, the vanguard of modern percussion, and a thrilling musical snapshot of contemporary multicultural Australia. See it now, before the world changes.

Common Time plays at Parramatta Riverside Theatres on July 15 at 8pm. Book at www.
