Music for the Dancing Percussionist

Music for Dancing Percussionist Dancing itself begs description. The performance of the percussionist allows the body a tremendous range of movements, echoing the command of dancing. By studying one of the masterpieces of Iannis Xenakis, Rebonds A, percussionist Mei-yi Lee and composer Lam Lai examined its augmented perspective, restructured the movement of the percussionist by providing the body with its great flexibility and mobility. With the conventional notation and the new position of the drums, an unfamiliar way of dancing began to speak.
