Called “brilliant” by The New York Times and “astonishing and entrancing” by Billboard, So Percussion brings its inventive beats to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Brooklyn-based quartet performs exciting works by contemporary composers and their own original music on everything from standard drums to the glockenspiel, coffee cups, metal pipes and an amplified cactus. Together since 1999, this accomplished group has worked with the likes of Medeski Martin & Wood, the Dirty Projectors, Dan Deacon and even sculptor Martin Kersels. For their concert at the Met, they’ll explore the DIY and experimental components of punk. So Percussion will be joined by composer/percussionist John Colpitts’ experimental drum project Man Forever. Colpitts (aka Kid Millions) is a Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist, composer and writer who is perhaps best known as the drummer for Oneida. Man Forever is his vehicle for exploring the outer limits of drum experimentation and performance. Since 2010, Man Forever has released two full-length albums and two live recordings.
