re•create percussion was founded by Rebekah Ko and Storm Benjamin. Rebekah is a virtuosic marimbist originating from LA. Her artistic vision is highlighted by a steadfast commitment to high quality, artful music. Storm Benjamin is a native of Washington who’s commitments lie in using percussion music to enrich the culture of the Northwest. This performance is an exercise within the collective’s artistic sensibilities and ideas, using prepared piano, marimba, vibraphone, and triangle. Storm and Rebekah will be collaborating with Ben Marx and Kevin Blanquies. The musics of Ben Marx are simple rhythmic improvisations on percussion instruments that will mingle with pre-determined electronic sample-base sounds (mostly from symphony orchestra source material) to create unique and varied soundscapes. Also featured is Toccata, a virtuosic piece written for vibraphone and marimba by Anders Koppel.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center (which sits on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish people): contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics. Watch a video clip about us on the Seattle Channel.
